About the Partnership

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL’s) partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) addresses critical aspects of deploying advanced energy systems in developing countries. This includes renewable energy integration, grid modernization, distributed energy resources and storage, efficiency, power sector resilience, and the data and analytical tools needed to support successful energy transitions.

Global Toolkits

The USAID-NREL Partnership’s global technical platforms provide free, state-of-the-art support on common and critical challenges to scaling up advanced energy systems. Learn about the global toolkits.

Country Support

In addition to its global toolkits, the NREL-USAID Partnership addresses country-specific challenges through targeted technical assistance. These activities, often based on the toolkits, address energy sector challenges that may include planning, policy formulation, and analytical support. Learn more about our projects.
