Latin America and the Caribbean are rich in energy resources including hydrocarbons, hydroelectricity, and biofuels, yet many countries in the region face energy shortages due to under-investment in supply infrastructure and the rising price of imported fuels.

As global companies invest in tapping resources and developing infrastructure to meet energy needs, Tetra Tech is there to help study, plan, design, and oversee construction of our clients’ most important energy projects.

Energy is critical to economic development and social equity. The Inter-American Development Bank, however, estimates that 34 million people in Latin America and the Caribbean lack access to modern electricity. Tetra Tech is working with our clients—policy planners, investors, financial institutions, and international development agencies—to improve the energy sector’s reach and performance. We are assisting with commercial enterprise and government regulation and integration of renewable and other low-carbon-generation options into the energy mix to help mitigate climate change.

Tetra Tech offers the following energy services:

  • Energy sector reform
  • Utility restructuring and commercialization
  • Energy efficiency and demand side management
  • Rural and renewable energy
  • Environmental and design engineering support
