The purpose of USAID Clean Power Asia is to accelerate the regional transition to high performing, low carbon power sector. The Activity will assist the governments of the Lower Mekong and other developing countries in Asia in energy planning and help establish effective policy, regulatory, and technical environment for low-emissions growth in the power sector, while simultaneously attracting public- and private-sector investment in Renewable Energy (RE) development. USAID Clean Power Asia is focused on the following resources: solar, wind, small hydro (<15 MW), and biomass residues. The program’s activities are focused on the four Lower Mekong countries of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam, but also includes activities on the ASEAN regional level.
The Renewable Energy Financial Advisor works under the direct supervision of the Task 3 Team Leader. Overall, the financial advisor will support work in the Mekong countries, and the broader ASEAN, related to mobilize investment from public and private sector into renewable energy as well as to collaborate with other key market players in lead efforts with partners, subcontractors, and others to institute such mechanisms in support of a stronger enabling environment for RE.
