Welcome to the USAID Clean Energy Emission Reduction (CLEER) Tool


USAID works with partner countries to establish the foundations for low emission energy systems, with a focus on helping countries build enabling environments that can attract and sustain private investment in clean energy. Clean Energy activities promote the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies, build human and institutional capacity, and improve the enabling environment for clean energy investment and deployment. This work seeks to transform trends in GHG emissions, while promoting sustainable human and economic development.

The Clean Energy Emission Reduction (CLEER) Protocol and Tool provides USAID with a consistent approach for estimating, tracking, and reporting GHG emission reductions across Clean Energy programs.
