The Colombia Clean Energy Program (CCEP) was USAID/Colombia’s flagship clean energy activity and supports the Presidential Initiative on Climate Change and the government-wide Enhancing Capacity – Low Emissions Development Strategy (EC-LEDS).
Under this program financed by USAID, Tetra Tech and SEGURA Consulting LLC assisted in the development of Colombia’s technical and institutional capacity in clean energy.
Project activities included:
- Providing technical and economic analysis assistance to enhance the energy efficiency enabling environment.
- Supporting comprehensive and quantitative analysis of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) opportunities to guide future project investments in strategic sectors.
- Providing a detailed review of the regulatory framework, and producing recommendations to introduce reforms that will enhance the opportunities for energy efficient growth and renewable energy investment promotion.
- Improved access to finance in collaboration with Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) as well as through the development of a Project Preparation Facility (PPF). The PPF concentrated on the identification and promotion of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) projects providing transaction assistance from their origin to their financial closure.
