We consider a parametric elliptic PDE with a scalar piecewise constant diffusion coefficient taking arbitrary positive values on fixed subdomains. This problem is not uniformly elliptic, as the contrast can be arbitrarily high, contrary to the Uniform Ellipticity Assumption (UEA) that is commonly made on parametric elliptic PDEs.We construct reduced model spaces that approximate uniformly well all solutions with estimates in relative error that are independent of the contrast level. These estimates are sub-exponential in the reduced model dimension, yet exhibiting the curse of dimensionality as the number of subdomains grows. Similar estimates are obtained for the Galerkin projection, as well as for the state estimation and parameter estimation inverse problems. A key ingredient in our construction and analysis is the study of the convergence towards limit solutions of stiff problems when diffusion tends to infinity in certain domains.
