PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 9, 2019--

Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded the Company a $500 million, five-year, multiple-award contract to provide technical assistance for the Energy II program.

Almost two-thirds of the developing world’s population lacks access to electricity. Under this contract, Tetra Tech will support USAID to address the growing demand for and use of modern energy services by promoting sustainable, renewable energy technologies; increasing energy security; and strengthening energy sector reforms.

Tetra Tech data scientists will perform advanced analytics to assess energy markets, increase greater regional cooperation through cross-border trade, and improve utility performance. Our energy specialists will work to catalyze private sector investment by establishing a regulatory framework with clear and transparent rules, and analyze environmental and social implications of proposed energy services. Tetra Tech also will assist national and local governments to improve their capacity to govern the energy sector and prepare for and respond to disasters.

“Access to safe, reliable, and sustainable sources of energy is critical to a country’s economic growth,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO. “Tetra Tech has supported USAID’s global energy programs for the past 10 years. We look forward to continuing this support, incorporating the latest technologies and analytics to create resilient energy solutions in developing countries.”
