"Tetra Tech has delivered innovative energy sector performance improvement solutions to governments and electric utilities for decades."

Under the deal, Tetra Tech will help project developers and investors to leverage the country’s power sector investment, as well as access financing for clean projects to facilitate generation of 2,000MW to 3,000MW capacity over the next four years.

These initiatives will help Pakistan advance its policy reform agenda, which would not only increase private sector investment but also ensure a sustainable supply.

As part of the contract, Tetra Tech will also deliver technical services to boost private investment in clean energy projects, including increasing the capacity of the transmission system and energy markets; improving the commercial viability of the power distribution subsector; and advancing sector governance through policy reforms that facilitate investment and privatisation of energy services.
