UTILITY OF THE FUTURE

In 2021, MKA was awarded the USAID Contract for Advancing Modern Power through Utility Partnerships (AmpUp). This $39M AmpUp program introduces an innovative performance improvement model centered around peer-to-peer relationships and strong stakeholder networks to deploy expertise and establish pathways to implement best practices with measurable and sustainable impacts. This work takes a new approach to building collaborative structures for USAID-assisted utilities. Under this five-year project, MKA is developing a project portfolio as well as tools for community partners that accelerate project development and equitable finance.
