Capturing the Sun in the Land of the Blue Sky

December 2012 [pdf]. The Renewable Energy and Rural Electricity Access Project (REAP) helped the Government of Mongolia (GoM) successfully complete its ambitious, National 100,000 Solar Ger Electrification Program. The Program provided a vast, dispersed community of over half a million nomadic herders with access to modern forms of electricity through portable solar home systems (SHS). The REAP was funded by the World Bank including grants from the International Development Association (IDA), Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the Government of the Netherlands.
