Ultimate client: Government of Takijistan
Since 2013, I have been involved in a few projects in Tajikistan, the main one of which is an "operational improvement" project to nudge the country's electricity supply industry towards much-need reforms. Under this project, as Tariff Specialist in 2013, I developed a revenue requirements and financial forecast model as well as a cost of service model from which theoretical cost-based tariffs could be calculated. I was called back in 2015 to update my work, which I did, in addition to developing a Tariff Policy and a corresponding Tariff Methodology for the Government's consideration. The last I heard (mid-2017), the Policy was actually adopted by the Government and the Methodology was being examined, so it appears there has been some progress...
Since 2013, I have undertaken about ten trips to Tajikistan, most of them in connection with the above work. Two other projects arose over the period, including a feasibility study for rehabilitating the Golovnaya hydropower plant and a Project Completion Report for the Nurek hydropower plant switchyard. For both of these assignments, my role was Economic and Financial Specialist.
