OVERVIEW OF THE RREA
The Rural and Renewable Energy Agency (RREA) is an independent agency of the Government of Liberia, established in January 2010 to facilitate and accelerate the economic transformation of rural Liberia by promoting the commercial development and supply of modern energy products and services to rural areas through the private sector and community initiatives with an emphasis, but not necessarily exclusive reliance, on locally available renewable resources. The RREA will also manage a Rural Energy Fund (REFUND) that will facilitate and provide for the coordinated and sustainable financing of projects and programs for the delivery of modern energy services in Liberia’s interior. The REFUND is the channel through which domestic and international financial resources intended for rural and renewable energy delivery in Liberia will be managed.
To facilitate and accelerate the economic transformation of rural Liberia by promoting the commercial development and supply of modern energy services to rural areas with emphasis on locally available renewable resources.

The operational responsibility for implementing the policies and programs of the RREA is vested in its Executive Director, who is the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Administrator of the Agency. The Executive Director is assisted by a number of senior directors, each heading a unit within the Agency which constitutes the senior management team (SMT) of the RREA.
