Abt To Help Modernize Mongolia’s Electricity Sector Through $11.9M, 5-Year Contract With USAID www.abtassociates.com

Rockville, Md. – Mongolia relies heavily on coal reserves for power and heat production throughout the country, while maintaining a highly subsidized tariff system—all of which have led to social, economic, and health crises. The most obvious ramifications can be seen in Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, where air pollutants are measured at more than 40 times the amount deemed safe by the World Health Organization.
To address these challenges, Abt Associates will lead USAID’s Mongolia Energy Governance (MEG) Activity, which will advance electricity sector and district heating modernization by building the country’s capacity to mobilize investment for renewable energy, introduce competitive procurement, deploy advanced energy technology, and enact policy reforms. These advances will enable the country’s private sector to drive future economic growth in the energy sector while improving social development and better health due to lower pollution.
Under the five-year, $11.9 million contract (with $2 million in grants), Abt will implement the project with a local subcontractor, the Mongolian Renewables Industries Association. Abt will also partner with key members of our consortium for USAID’s Energy II IDIQ: the Stockholm and Environmental Institute, Vitelli and Associates, and Arizona State University.
Activities will include guiding energy investments, building Mongolia’s capacity for energy policy development and for monitoring energy efficiency, and ensuring 40 percent of participants are women. Overall goals for MEG include mobilizing investment for clean energy projects and bringing on additional generation capacity.
“Modernizing Mongolia's energy sector is imperative to tackle social, economic, and health crises by improving governance, attracting investment, and boosting government revenues,” said Abt Senior Vice President, International Development, Eric J. Reading. “We at Abt are thrilled to take on the challenge, in partnership with USAID, the government of Mongolia, and Mongolian NGOs.”
