PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK), a leading provider of high-end consulting and engineering services, announced today that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded the Company a 5-year, $12 million, single-award contract to improve Kosovo’s energy sector by strengthening the capacity of local institutions to advance energy market development and regional integration, and facilitate private sector investments in sustainable energy generation.
Tetra Tech energy specialists will work with the Government of Kosovo to strengthen a regional energy market based on European Union standards and foster increased private-sector investment that will leverage $300 million in investments and generate an additional renewable energy capacity of 200 megawatts.
