It is estimated that nearly $5 billion of grant assistance and private sector investments will go into the Afghanistan energy sector during 2013-2015. Although the government has taken charge of strategic and operational planning in the energy sector and donor coordination to harmonize investment plans since 2002, there remains a critical need to institutionalize ICE and ensure its sustainability. The TA will help bridge this gap. In addition, the TA will assist in (i) institutionalizing the power sector master plan; (ii) updating energy policy and sector plans, including the operation and maintenance strategy; and (iii) preparing technical reports and working papers through the formation of working groups or subcommittees (e.g., renewable energy, development of unified grid, and synchronization with neighboring countries) supported by consultants to debate and conclude operational issues in the sector.
