We represent an international pool of expertise from the electricity industry, and as part of our mission, we build local capacities by sharing this business know-how and experiences. Under this commitment, we seek to build on the GSEP’s 20 years of experience and our members’ business know-how and expertise in electrification projects to develop workshops with toolkits aimed at helping participants create sound business models for sustainable-energy projects.
GSEP launched its Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) for Sustainable Electricity Development Program in Warsaw, Poland, November 19, 2013 at the 19th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP19). The program has been developed with support from the UN Economic Commission for Europe and its International PPP Centre for Excellence.
We strongly believe that well-designed PPPs are critical to accelerate the deployment of sustainable electricity technologies and, in turn, foster economic development, raise standards of living and develop human capital.
The new program builds on the findings of global surveys in 2011 and 2012 of 119 national and international public and private sector stakeholders and looks to create a forum that will empower decision makers in developing countries to define the best strategies and practices for the successful implementation of PPPs in the sustainable electricity sector.
Leaders from major international organisations are endorsing this program, recognizing the catalytic role it plays in bringing key people around the table for open discussions on how to practically implement successful PPPs.
