About this Site

Access to the latest high quality information on renewables, energy efficiency and climate change is fundamental to the acceleration of the clean energy marketplace, facilitating investments, promoting new legislation and regulations and broadening interest and knowledge in the sector.

reegle acts as a unique clean energy information portal, targeting specific stakeholders including governments, project developers, businesses, financiers, NGOs, academia, international organizations and civil society. Alongside comprehensive country energy profiles, energy statistics and a directory of relevant stakeholders it also offers the clean energy search and an extensive glossary. There is also an insightful clean energy blog with interesting and up-to-date background information.

Utilising an intelligent search mechanism to refine an intellegent web search, reegle offers user-friendly features to ensure a pleasant and sucessful search experience.

reegle has developed an Actors Catalogue, a directory of organisations involved in clean energy. It contains contact details, activities and focus of  (and links to) more than 1700 initiatives, partnerships and organisations involved in relevant fields. This directory can  also be used with a filter mechanism, displaying  stakeholders of the required type  and region.

As an ever evolving enterprise, reegle has  introduced a frequently updated blog, developed strong co-operations with carefully chosen partners and offers developers  all its data free for re-use in an open data format. An exciting new feature are the country energy profiles which sum up stakeholders, project outcome papers, important statistics and energy policies from several trusted sources in a comprehensive dossier.
