AECOM’s previous experience finding critical energy solutions on other USAID-funded energy projects enables us to apply relevant experience to this contract and provide superior insight to complex challenges,” said John M. Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer. “We look forward to assisting USAID in its effort to improve energy access in developing countries.”

The USAID program is designed to improve access to reliable and affordable clean energy, improve regulation and governance in the energy sector, demonstrate the use of innovative technologies and business models, and assist with the transition to a low-carbon development trajectory.

AECOM is a global provider of professional technical and management support services to sectors including transportation, facilities, environmental, energy, water and government. With approximately 45,000 employees around the world, AECOM had revenue of $8.2 billion in 2012.
