Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The proposed project is complementary to other support provided by the Bank. The Bank is currently implementing technical assistance, financed by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), which is mapping the potential of small hydropower projects (less than 20 MW). This will improve datasets and increase the awareness of stakeholders (both Government and private sector) for facilitating the development of this renewable energy resource. Most importantly, it will create opportunities to lower the cost of generation, green the energy mix, and foster private sector participation in hydro generation. This activity will provide an indication of the sites with the best potential for electricity generation. The Bank is also supporting the Electricity Sector Operations and Governance Improvement Project (ESOGIP), under which it is developing of a Least Cost Power Development Plan (LCPDP), a tariff study, and an Electrification Strategy Access strategy. The project also seeks to improve the performance of JIRAMA (which should help making it a healthier utility and more able to enter into IPP arrangements in the future). The Government has equally requested support through the IFC-led Scaling Solar initiative and it is possible that SREP funds could be used to support this.
