With support from USAID/Haiti, the U.S. Energy Association (USEA) manages the Haiti Energy Policy and Utility Partnership Program (HEPP). HEPP will expose Haitian energy policy makers and utility officials to the necessary policy, regulatory and technical frameworks needed to expand generation, encourage private investment and diversify Haiti’s power resources. Through a series of exchange programs to U.S. and third-country utilities, HEPP will share practical information, real-world case studies and best practices on a variety of policy and technical issues related to the following areas:
- Energy policy, legal and regulatory frameworks that lead to needed reforms to modernize the electricity sector, as well as measures to encourage private sector participation and investment
- Cross-border electricity trade
- Importation and utilization of LNG
- Renewable energy development and integration.
