Marcel Raats

Manager, Energy and Climate, International Development, Netherlands Enterprise and Development Agency

Marcel Raats manages the Energy and Climate Team in the Department for International Development at the Netherlands Enterprise and Development Agency (RVO.nl). The team cooperates closely with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs on its agenda for renewable energy and climate change and manages various programs and activities promoting energy access. Goal of that agenda is to facilitate inclusive and sustainable energy access, including for clean cooking, to at least 100 million people by 2030, by supporting broad sector transitions for decentralized renewable energy. Over the years Marcel has set-up and (co-)managed various donor funded programs amongst which are EnDev (co-managed with GIZ), the SDG7Results RBF facility, and activities on biogas and cooking energy. Creating partnerships with and between actors in the sector is central in the approach.
