Pasadena-based consulting and engineering services firm Tetra Tech, Inc. has been awarded an $85 million single-award contract by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to support enhanced energy security in Ukraine.

The five-year USAID/Ukraine Energy Security through Competitive Energy Markets Program aims to improve the legal and regulatory environment in Ukraine’s energy sector and increase the resilience of energy supplies in that country.

Tetra Tech will provide technical services to support private sector-led energy investments, increased renewable energy generation, and reliable and affordable energy for all Ukrainians, according to a Tetra Tech press release Monday.

“Tetra Tech is pleased to support USAID’s work in Ukraine to improve energy efficiency and supply while stimulating economic growth for the region and its citizens,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO.

Specifically, Tetra Tech will develop energy market models to create competitive energy market reforms, complete renewable energy pre-feasibility assessments, and develop creative financial incentive mechanisms to facilitate private sector investment in renewable energy.

Tetra Tech also will collaborate with local organizations in implementing the program to develop Ukraine’s institutional capacity, encourage ownership of results, and ensure sustainability of reforms.
