Sub-Saharan Africa

Renewable Energy Performance Platform (REPP)

The Renewable Energy Performance Platform (REPP) is a £48m BEIS funded ICF programme. REPP aims to provides technical assistance (TA) and in select cases, results-based finance to small-medium scale renewable energy project developers operating in Sub-Saharan Africa to help them attract finance and to make their project commercially viable. The overall objective of this assignment was the execution of a mid-term evaluation of the REPP. The purpose of this evaluation assignment was to support learning for BEIS on ‘what is working, for whom and in what contexts’. Specifically, the evaluation provided BEIS with insights and analysis into the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of REPP’s overall strategy, its services (RBF and TA), its governance and delivery structures/processes and the value for money it offers. The assignment was organised into three ‘Workstreams’ with corresponding outputs: a process evaluation, the design of a summative impact evaluation and a review of current results reporting arrangements. The findings of the process evaluation formed the basis for future impact evaluation and investigation into the REPP delivery and governance mechanisms were also be used to understand and assess current results reporting systems. LTS was the technical lead for this project and was responsible for overall team management, strategic oversight, coordination and delivery of all three project workstreams.
