ESMAP annual report 2014 (English)

The developing world is presently undergoing an energy transition as fundamental as that of the late 1970s and early 1980s, when the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) was founded to help countries navigate through the oil crises of the period. This present transition, however, is characterized more by opportunity than by crisis. Countries face a wide range of choices when it comes to planning the future of their energy sectors. In some regions, renewable energy has become cost competitive with other sources and increasingly can provide utility-scale power to national grids. As it has for over 30 years, ESMAP works with its clients as a trusted partner, helping countries make informed choices and develop energy sectors that will be sustainable into the future. In recent years, ESMAP has devoted considerable resources to strategic global initiatives that could help spur transformational impacts for the energy sectors of many countries. These include the global geothermal development plan (chapter two), renewable energy resource mapping (chapter two), the sustainable energy for all technical assistance program for universal energy access (chapter three), the city energy efficiency transformation initiative (chapter four), and the energy subsidy reform and delivery technical assistance facility (chapter five).
