The RERED Project

The Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL), with the assistance of the World Bank and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) has established the Renewable Energy for Rural Economic Development (RERED) Project, which aims to foster rural economic development through private sector and community based development models. Project targets include (a) provision of electricity access to 100,000 households through solar home systems and independent mini-grids fed by micro hydros, wind and biomass generators, (b) electrification of 1,000 small and medium rural enterprises through renewable energy resources and (c) addition of 85MW capacity through grid-connected renewable energy power plants.

GOSL has appointed DFCC Bank as the RERED Administrative Unit (AU). The RERED Project channels funds through participating credit institutions (PCI) to individual investments. Grant funds are also available from the GEF for selected technical assistance activities.
