Introduction

For over 35 years, I have been working in the electricity supply industry as a consultant, mainly on international development projects, providing expert services on economic, financial, policy and regulatory issues. This has included electricity tariffs and associated costing, financial/ economic analysis, corporate/ strategic planning and monitoring & evaluation (M&E) of energy projects.

Although neatly classifying projects into well-defined categories is sometimes not that straightforward, I have generally provided assistance in four areas:

1.  Economic and financial analyses of capital-intensive infrastructure projects. In particular, I understand hydropower developments very well, as well as other sources of renewable energy. For a complete list of such projects in which I have been involved, click here.

2.  Tariff studies, including all related analyses leading up to tariff design for the electricity supply industry. This includes determination of revenue requirements, cost of service studies, marginal cost analyses and detailed tariff design. Historically, this has been the specialty area that has brought in most of my work, as may be seen from this list of tariff related work in which I have been involved.

3.  Team leadership on power sector projects. I have effectively managed teams of multidisciplinary professionals, including both consultants and client staff. This has included not only projects in my areas of expertise, but also very technical engineering oriented projects. My Team Leader/ Task Leader/ PM experience is summarized here.

4.  Performance and impact evaluations of energy sector projects undertaken by development agencies. While evaluation is usually the realm of evaluation specialists, sometimes it is best to have someone who knows the energy sector and its technical intricacies to lead such efforts or to be involved as a power industry specialist. I have been involved in a few such evaluations since 2012. They are summarized here.
