PASADENA: Tetra Tech Inc., a leading provider of high-end consulting and engineering services, announced that the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded the Company a five-year, $25 million single-award contract to increase renewable energy consumption and reduce deforestation in Zambia.
The Alternatives to Charcoal Activity represents the flagship investment from the USAID/Zambia Mission to counter climate change and contribute towards poverty reduction through the sustainable management of forest resources.
Tetra Tech’s research scientists and analysts will use advanced data analytics to conduct market research on available technologies, collect baseline data on barriers to alternative energy use, and facilitate the adoption of renewable fuel technologies in Zambia.
Through policy and regulatory framework reform, the project will strengthen the ability of the private sector to increase availability of and access to renewable energy sources for urban Zambian households.
