According to the bank website, the project will support the Republic of the Marshall Islands' (RMI) renewable energy targets and greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets through investments in the Majuro distribution network. The project will install an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) in the Majuro power distribution network to enable Marshalls Energy Company (MEC) to collect data on physical energy flows within its network, reduce system technical and commercial losses, and improve system reliability. The data provided by the AMI will also inform successive investments in Majuro's power system, including siting of additional renewable energy generation assets on the Majuro power system. Consulting advisory services will be provided to support the AMI implementation, and to prepare a comprehensive capacity-building and business-process reengineering (BPR) roadmap for implementation under successive investment projects.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
