USAID

Expanding access to modern energy services to power economic and social development is the cornerstone of USAID’s energy-related mission.

To achieve this, the Agency develops and implements programs that seek to:

  • Support the construction and rehabilitation of infrastructure to restore basic services in post conflict and conflict-prone states.

  • Improve enabling environments, including policy, legal, regulatory, and commercial reforms, to boost energy sector performance and increase private sector participation and investment.

  • Enhance operational and commercial performance of public and private sector institutions, including utilities.

  • Promote increased energy trade and regional power pools.

  • Help countries reduce their overall carbon emissions and address climate change through clean energy and energy efficiency projects.
