Renewable Energy Promotion Grants in Developing Countries from the Government of Switzerland
The independent platform Renewable Energy, Energy and Resource Efficiency Promotion in Developing and Transition Countries (REPIC) supports projects in the field of renewable energies and/or energy efficiency and/or resource efficiency (waste, wastewater and industrial processes). The project applicant has to be a Swiss organization (companies, NGOs, institutes, etc.) but the project target country must be a developing country. The maximum amount per project is CHF150 thousand. Applications can be submitted at any time but there are deadlines to respect prior to each Steering Group meeting where the evaluation takes place. The next deadlines for project submission are 22 November 2020 and 23 March 2021.

Depending on the needs, the project idea can be discussed with the REPIC Secretariat, which allows for a first evaluation without any commitment. This makes it possible to determine whether the request meets the requirements of the REPIC platform and whether any support is possible.
In the first phase, the applicant proposes his/her project in the form of a project outline. On the basis of the outline document, the REPIC Steering Group makes a decision concerning entering into the subject matter (or not entering into the subject matter) in relation to the project. In the second phase, a project proposal must be submitted to the REPIC platform. The decision concerning the financial support of the project will be communicated to the applicant in writing. It will be substantiated and binding. The terms and conditions for REPIC’s support of the project will then be defined by a contract.
