- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Agency for International Development's (AID) efforts to promote renewable energy and fuelwood projects in developing countries.
GAO believes that it is premature to evaluate the field projects, because the AID renewable energy and fuelwood projects are in early implementation stages. However, if AID is to meet its goals of easing energy constraints to development and assisting developing countries to make the transition to using various energy sources, including renewable energy sources capable of sustaining developing-country economies in the future, project implementation and energy device field testing should be reviewed.
