The PPIAF-financed activity provides technical assistance and capacity building to the Government to successfully implement these priority actions. In this context, the World Bank is seeking a Technical Advisor to support Government in strategic and operational decisions related to the scale up of distributed renewable energy in Haiti, in particular through developing public-private partnerships (PPP) options for retrofitting of existing utility/municipal mini grids, and building incentives for investments in new mini grids. This will be done through the provision of capacity building, facilitation of lessons learned from similar country contexts and other similar technical advice.
