East Africa: Contract Awarded for Independent Review of the DFID East Africa Geothermal program

MWH to review DFID East Africa Geothermal Energy Program (New Release)

From the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF) Website
The UK Department for International Development (DFID) has awarded MWH, now part of Stantec, the contract for conducting an independent review of the DFID East Africa Geothermal program in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda.

The East Africa Geothermal Energy program was created to encourage investments in geothermal development in East Africa through two support facilities: the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF), through which support is provided to private and public geothermal developers to reduce the financial risk in the early stages of geothermal development, and the East Africa Geothermal (EAGER) Technical Assistance Facility, a flexible and demand responsive technical assistance facility to help countries put in place the policies, regulations and institutional structures that facilitate investment in geothermal power.

MWH will conduct an independent review of the program to report on the general progress and major issues affecting progress and – where needed – recommend adjustments to ensure the program runs effectively and delivers the intended outcomes.
