Improving power system efficiency in developing countries through performance contracting

Philip Yates

No 109, Policy Research Working Paper Series from The World Bank

Abstract: In the United States, some large industrial and commercial energy users have sucessfully used energy performance contractors to effect energy savings in exchange for a share of the savings. In some developing countries, governments have considered various forms of government/utility performance contract, whereby the governments give the utilities more flexibility and autonomy in exchange for better performance. Why not merge the two concepts? A utility could engage a performance contractor to improve operations in exchange for a share of the savings - thereby allowing the utility to perform its performance contract with the government. The government would give the utility more autonomy in exchange for better performance.
