Under the five-year contract, Aecom may provide technical energy services such as developing activities and strategy designs; creating enabling environments for clean energy development and energy-sector reform; incorporating climate change into USAID mission programs; increasing human resource capacity relating to energy services; fostering private-sector participation and investment; facilitating innovative financing approaches; assessing the environmental implications of energy services; and improving disaster preparations, responses and recovery in the energy sector.
The contract covers "non-critical priority countries" as designated by USAID.
"Aecom’s previous experience finding critical energy solutions on other USAID-funded energy projects enables us to apply relevant experience to this contract and provide superior insight to complex challenges," said John M. Dionisio, Aecom chairman and chief executive officer.
