  • Honduras
  • St Lucia
    • Technical Assistance for Implementation of the Energy Component of the SFA EU Banana Support Programme 2006 in Saint Lucia > Ministry of Economic Affairs, Economic Planning and National Developement Saint Lucia is currently totally dependent on imported fossil fuels for its energy needs. However, there is potential for geothermal, wind, solar and - to a very limited extent - hydro energy. The Government of Saint Lucia was therefore seeking to exploit these renewable energy sources in order to diversify the national energy portfolio, reduce reliance on imported fuels and achieve environmental benefits. In this context, the project aimed to support the Government of Saint Lucia to develop an overall strategic plan for the implementation of policy initiatives in the areas of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

    • Evaluation of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy interventions and transformation towards a Green economy in the Windward Islands > Delegation of the European Union The EU delegation chose AETS to assess the impact of the past EU funded interventions having an impact on the competitiveness of the Windward islands, and the potential and possible gaps in promoting Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) and the transformation towards a green economy. The 2-expert team provided decision-makers in the Governments of the respective countries, the Region and the European Union sufficient information to: - Make an overall assessment regarding the past performance of the many interventions, particularly their actual impact against the original objectives, and their sustainability (operationalisation and maintenance); - Identify key lessons and practical recommendations for the programming, design and formulation of initiatives in the Energy Sector in general and specifically to the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency; and - support the transformation to a green economy.

    • Technical Assistance to the assessmentof options for supporting local action on adaptation to climate change: scaling up of best practices and access to finance > European Commission AETS contributes to enhancing the effectiveness and impact of EU action in support to adaptation to climate change in developing countries, in particular the most vulnerable to climate change.

    • Assistance for the design of the institutional set-up and technical program for the Caribbean Centre on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) > UNIDO The Sustainable Energy Island Initiative (SIDS DOCK) is planning to establish a Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE). The centre will promote sustainable energy development in the Caribbean by improving access to modern services, improving energy security and mitigation of energy related negative environmental externalities. This is expected to be achieved by creating an enabling a renewable energy and energy efficiency regional market and by mitigating various barriers for the dissemination of sustainable energy technologies and services.

    • Information Collection for Regional Forecast of Universal Access to Electricity Investment Needs > IADB The IADB is preparing the foundation for assisting its beneficiary countries to develop specific detailed plans for Universal Access to Modern Energy including detailed economic analysis based on geo-referenced data, current resources, grid and generation optimization plans, among other important points in creating a holistic plan. Since a barrier to reaching universal access is the available resources for developing these plans, the bank wishes to quantify and demonstrate some potential advantages of planning for universal access. The objective of this assignment consists in assisting the Energy Division of the IADB to perform a regional analysis of the current access situation and provide a forecast of the investment needed to reach universal access in the Americas region. The project will also provide detailed 2012 information about each IDAB member country related to the SE4ALL pillar of Access to Modern Energy.

    • Technical and financial assessment of two newly-built power plants in Ghana > Ghana Energy Development and Access Project, Ministry of Energy In the recent past, Ghana, which used to enjoy a relatively stable supply of power mainly from hydro-electric power plants, has faced some challenges as the demand for the supply of power gas continued to grow. The Government initiated a number of supplementary power generation projects including the Kpone Thermal Power Project (KTPP) and the Tema Thermal 2 Power Project (TT2PP) to address the occasional power crises.  Two Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contracts were therefore signed to build these two power plants. These two projects were due for completion in 2009. However, three years down the line, work on the completion and commissioning of the KPTT has stalled while work towards the completion of the TT2PP has virtually been completed. The aim of this assignment is: 1. To assess the status of completion of the KTPP and TT2PP projects; and 2. To make recommendations towards ensuring the completion of the projects and the subsequent operation of the plants in a cost-effective manner.
