|Renewable Energy Applications and Training (REAT)||The REAT program funds global, regional, and country-specific activities to increase the commercialization of renewable energy technologies. It focuses on removing obstacles to the use of commercially proven technologies that use wind, solar, biomass, small hydro, and geothermal resources. REAT emphasizes information and skills transfer, policy reform, private sector involvement, project identification and design, and identification of financing mechanisms.||USAID||Total: $34.3 million GEF: $34.3 million||1985–2002|
|Small- and Medium-Scale Enterprise Program||The program is designed to stimulate greater involvement of private, small- and medium-scale enterprises (SME) in GEF-eligible activities. It on-lends GEF grant funds to carefully screened financial intermediaries at long-term low-interest rates. The intermediaries commit to use the funds to finance GEF-eligible projects. The program allows the intermediaries to fund long-term loans or equity investments in relatively high-risk, experimental SME projects where normally suitably priced capital is lacking.||GEF/IFC||Total: $52.5 million|
GEF: $16.50 million
|Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (REEF)|| REEF provides a pool of grant funds to a separate $150–$210 million fund being established by the International Finance |
