NRECA International’s principal goal is to promote rural economic development through the expansion of access to electric service. Since 1962, programs designed and implemented by NRECA have focused on improving and expanding rural electric infrastructure, establishing self-sustaining and well-managed electric utilities, and providing technical assistance to national electrification planners and electric utilities in developing economies. NRECA has designed, developed, and supervised the construction of grid and mini-grid systems using hydroelectric power stations; biomass gasification/combustion systems; wind-hybrid power systems; and solar photovoltaic energy systems. Since the focal point of NRECA programs is always on the consumer, NRECA has remained technology-neutral, selecting the most appropriate least-cost technology solution to serve communities participating in electrification programs.
NRECA is currently working on three continents to provide expertise in electrification investment planning; renewable energy off-grid utility design and start-up; utility benchmarking and service improvements; construction supervision; smart grid planning and implementation; and engineering design and analysis. Current projects are underway in Angola, Bangladesh, Benin, Bolivia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, Liberia, Mozambique, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, and projects were recently completed in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Jamaica, Kenya, Malawi, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Tanzania.
