Coping with the Energy Challenge by portaladmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:49 AM
The purpose of this toolkit is to: 1. Provide a broad diagnostic framework to identify a country’s potential energy sector challenges, particularly as related to a country’s dependency on oil. This framework assesses country vulnerability by focusing on specific energy sector conditions as reflected by the various indicators included here, which were chosen because they provide insights into the overall dynamics of the energy sector. 2. Illustrate the linkages between challenges (identified by the indicators) and potential interventions that should be considered when developing USAID mission’s programs to cope with the challenges related to oil dependency. (It is important to clarify that this tool does not automatically provides appropriate answers for all countries in the world. Individual assessments should be carried out to adjust and customize level of detail required for specific countries). 3. Provide a comprehensive bibliography organized in a manner that allows the user to explore direct links to papers, studies or reports illustrating the various interventions.
Electricity Sector Reform: Training and Field Support Toolkit by portaladmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:49 AM
This toolkit provides guidance to USAID country missions on the key elements to consider in desiging and implementing electricity sectory reforms by, (1) assessing the evolution of power market reforms in terms of its main drivers, models, and outcomes; (2) identifying different building blocks options and success factors; (3) illustrating successful factors of power reform activities; (4) providing current thinking and lessons learned on a broad set of reform approaches and results, and (5) providing an extensive reference bibliography.
Fuel-Efficient Stove Programs in Humanitarian Settings: An Implementer’s Toolkit by portaladmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:49 AM
This Toolkit is designed to take you and your organization through a step-by-step process of assessment, planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of a proposed activity. While these guidelines focus primarily on wood-burning stoves, OFDA also will consider funding applications for stoves that utilize other fuels. A similarly thorough needs assessment and justification analysis will be required for those programs as well.
Grid-Connected Renewable Energy Generation by portaladmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:49 AM
This Toolkit is intended to help USAID mission staff and national decision makers understand and assess the relevance of policies and programs that have been used successfully in support of large, grid-connected renewable energy development. The toolkit highlights key issues that must be addressed in the design of a renewable energy framework, and seeks to explain key concepts. Basic information is provided on renewable energy technologies, but the toolkit is designed for policymakers, not engineers. However, the toolkit contains extensive references to other sources that contain more technical detail.
Optimal Feeder Level Connection: Training and Field Support Toolkit by portaladmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:49 AM
This Toolkit is intended to provide information for use by USAID staff working on energy matters, utility managers, and by other stakeholders involved in designing interventions to improve anti-theft utility operations in challenging neighborhoods. The toolkit provides a convenient reference with links to technologies and instruments that have been used successfully by six utilities. The Toolkit is not intended as a “how to” manual, nor to establish “models” to be replicated; rather, it is an informational tool to facilitate discussion on theft reduction options.
