World Bank Provides Grants to Haiti

“Haiti has significant untapped sources of renewable energy”, said Anabela Abreu, World Bank’s Country Director for Haiti. “The World Bank Group will continue to support the country in providing sustainable renewable energy to increase access for families, businesses and community services in underserved areas, diversify its energy mix, and reduce electricity cost”.

The two projects, “Renewable Energy For All” and “Haiti Modern Energy Services for All,” will help to Improve the environment for private investment in clean energy.

The projects are also expected to expand access for rural households through leveraged investments in micro and mini-grids, and village level systems.

It is hoped they will help raise awareness in local communities on how to use renewable energy..

Both projects will be implemented by the energy cell of the Ministry of Public Works, Transport and Communications.

The Renewable Energy for All project is financed by a $ 19.62 million grant from the Scaling-up Renewable Energy Program (SREP); and the Modern Energy Services for All project is financed by a  $15.65 million grant from the Clean Technology Fund (CTF).

Both grants are from the Climate Investment Fund (CIF) and are part of the World Bank’s accelerated effort to provide clean energy and resilient infrastructure.
