The development objective of the Electricity Sector Performance Improvement Project for West Bank and Gaza is to enhance the energy sector’s institutional capacity, improve efficiency of the distribution system in targeted areas, and pilot a new business model for solar energy service delivery in Gaza. The project comprises of four components. The first component is strengthening the capacity of Palestinian electricity sector institutions: Palestinian Electricity Transmission Company Limited (PETL) and Palestinian Electricity Regulatory Council (PERC). The second component, improving the operational performance of Palestinian electricity distribution companies consists of following sub-components: (i) revenue protection program; and (ii) management information systems. The third component, improving energy security in Gaza with solar energy supports the design and implementation of a pilot business model for rooftop solar energy in Gaza to ensure wider penetration across population segments while creating a model that can be easily replicated and rapidly scaled up. The fourth component, technical assistance, capacity building, and project management will finance salaries and operational expenditures of the project management unit (PMU) for two years.
