Adequate supplies of energy and electricity are necessary for the economic growth and prosperity of developing countries to ensure long-term investment, employment, and security. Tetra Tech’s clients—policy planners, investors, financial institutions, and bi-lateral development agencies—are addressing the interrelated challenges of improving the commercial and managerial performance of power supply infrastructure, expanding access to reliable energy supplies particularly in rural areas, promoting public and private investment in clean energy and low-carbon approaches to economic development, and supporting governments and private sector in developing countries to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
Tetra Tech is working with its clients to improve the energy sector’s performance, both in terms of enterprises and regulation, and to integrate renewable and other low-carbon-generation options into the energy mix. Learn more about our energy services.
