Rockville, Md. – More than two-thirds of the developing world’s population needs greater access to electricity. As part of its mission to improve the quality of life for people worldwide, Abt Associates has been addressing this challenge around the globe; a position on USAID’s new Energy IDIQ II vehicle will enable the company to expand its impact.
Through the $500 million, five-year, multiple-award contract, Abt will have the opportunity to bid on task orders addressing clean energy, access to electricity and capacity building within nations. All this while working with the communities that will benefit most from these reforms.
“This contract provides a great follow on to the work we do in Asia, Africa and Latin America on projects such as Clean Power Asia and CEADIR,” said Jay L. Knott, Abt’s Chief Business Officer. “Through Energy II, we can bring the collaborative approach and expertise in clean energy, good governance, adaptation and resilience that we’ve been using around the world to more than 50 countries.”
