Audit of USAID/Pakistan’s Energy Efficiency and Capacity Program.

Country: Pakistan
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Description:

Pakistani cities experience daily blackouts, often lasting 4 to 16 hours, because Pakistan has not added new power-generation capacity to meet the growing demand. USAID/Pakistan signed a $23.5 million contract with International Resources Group Ltd. in March 2009 to implement the Energy Efficiency and Capacity Program.

To help sustain Pakistan’s economic growth, the program aims to improve energy availability, affordability, conservation, and efficiency. The program has two main objectives: (1) promoting energy efficiency and conservation practices to reduce energy demand and (2) building the capacity of public sector organizations to better address the needs of the energy sector to increase supply and reduce demand.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Pakistan’s Energy Efficiency and Capacity Program is promoting energy efficiency and conservation practices to reduce demand and building the capacity of public sector organizations to better address the needs of the energy sector.
