At the beginning of August 2010 Center for Education and Raising Awareness of Energy Efficiency – Energis has become a full partner in the Renwable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), the first and only representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina in this important international institution. Energis has been awarded with this partnership due to its recognition of its work for over the past 6 months, since the official founding of Energis and early action in the field of energy efficiency and environmental protection.
During this period, Energis has been recognized as aÂ serious partner in these areas, especially in research that points toÂ the
necessity of implementation of energy efficient solutions for householdsÂ andÂ industry and the positive effect on the environment. Media appearances,Â research studies and projects are just some of the activities thatÂ EnergisÂ successfully implemented in recent years. This membership is of greatÂ importance to energy efficiency in Bosnia and Herzegovina because it
allowsÂ access to a large base of experts, experience and publications in theÂ field ofÂ energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. Center for Education andÂ RaisingÂ Awareness of Energy Efficiency – Energis has gained internationalÂ recognition
through active participation in congresses and conferences, includingÂ the WoodÂ Energy Congress held at the International Wood Fair in Klagenfurt,Â Austria.
REEEP wasÂ established alongside the 2002Â World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg. It is nowÂ comprised ofÂ 340 partners including 45 governements as well as a range of privateÂ companiesÂ and international organizations. The REEEP Regional Secretariats aroundÂ theÂ world, including China and India, ensure that activities are localÂ relevantÂ and focused. REEEP is supported primarily by governments andÂ contributions fromÂ the private sector. Robust governance and monitoring structures ensureÂ that allÂ contributions are spent transparently and effectively REEEPâ€™sÂ mission is to facilitate theÂ transformation of energy systems by accelerating the uptake ofÂ renewables andÂ energy efficiency technology, as a means of reducing carbon emissions,Â increasing energy security, and improving access to sustainable energyÂ for theÂ poor worldwide. REEEPÂ PartnersÂ agree that achieving this requires a concerted global effort to create aÂ levelÂ playing field for sustainable energy.
