ECODIT Awarded Power Africa Data and Technical Support Activity

USAID has awarded ECODIT the Power Africa Data and Technical Support Services Activity, a five-year project that will provide technical and data support to Power Africa, the U.S. Government initiative aimed at supporting economic growth and development by increasing access to reliable, affordable, and sustainable power across Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Data and Technical Support Services Activity is being implemented under the Power Africa Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), which ECODIT holds as a prime contractor. The IDIQ allows for the provision of technical assistance and transaction advisory services to implement USAID’s energy activities across the continent.

Through this activity, ECODIT will support Power Africa to improve data collection and reporting, assess progress toward its goals, identify and vet new partners, build capacity, and advise on technology, power transactions, and other topics, in order to advance Power Africa’s 2.0 strategy. This support will enable Power Africa to better achieve its goals of bringing 30,000 Megawatts of clean new energy and 60 million new electricity connections to Sub-Saharan Africa.

“ECODIT is proud to be a Power Africa partner,” said ECODIT Vice-President for Energy Richard Edwards. “We look forward to supporting Power Africa to bring power to millions of people across the continent who currently lack electricity access.”
