Power Sector Planning and Expansion Strategy
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency engaged Parsons Global Services to identify high-priority projects to rebuild and expand Haiti’s electricity supply and distribution capacity after sustaining significant damage in an earthquake in January 2010. Parsons was responsible for developing a power demand forecasting model and producing 20-year forecasts of peak demand, annual consumption, and annual changes in the load curve. Parsons also prepared a least-cost expansion plan, financing plan, and impact assessments. K&M was retained by the USTDA to review all of the deliverables from Parsons against the required scope of work, identify any deficiencies, and estimate the value of work completed by Parsons under the contract.
