Through this Clean Energy IDIQ contract and the task orders that will be issued under it, USAID will fund technical assistance in the Critical Priority countries to improve access to reliable and affordable clean energy, improve regulation and governance in the energy sector, demonstrate the use of innovative technologies and business models, and assist with the transition to a low carbon development trajectory.
