A non-profit international development organisation founded in 1971, Pact works on the ground in nearly 40 countries to improve the lives of those who are challenged by poverty and marginalisation. We strive for a world where all people are heard, capable and vibrant.
In May 2018 Pact launched its latest Signature Program, Energy for Prosperity (E4P), and a new integrated country platform called Smart Power Myanmar, with financial support from the Rockefeller Foundation.
With a focus on innovation and social enterprise, Pact’s E4P program works to improve access to energy as part of an integrated approach to development that creates the systemic changes needed to improve people’s lives. We collaborate with governments, companies, investors and other civil society organizations to connect supply and demand for energy, remove market distortions and work toward a future in which all people have the skills and resources they need to enjoy the many benefits of modern energy.
Smart Power Myanmar is accelerating access to renewable energy for poor and vulnerable people in Myanmar by bringing together key players in the public and private sectors, spurring economic growth and transforming lives in rural communities. The Smart Power Myanmar facility is building a viable, decentralized renewable energy ecosystem by ensuring the right incentives and policies are created to expand the reach of productive power to those who live without sufficient access, with a focus on customer-centered solutions, long-term socio-economic development and systemic change.
Since 1997 Pact has made small loans in Myanmar through its micro-finance arm PGMF. Since 2015 Pact has financed the purchase of solar home systems, mini-grid connections, and commercial/industrial equipment that productively uses energy through its Ahlin Yaung project. Through Energy for Prosperity and Smart Power Myanmar, Pact is now developing consumer and small business financing solutions for energy access and use.
The energy finance consultant will be responsible for working with the Senior Director, Energy for Prosperity, and the Senior Director for Energy Services within Smart Power Myanmar, to further develop and refine the value proposition for lending activities, develop a detailed financial model demonstrating the business case for various loan products, provide expertise on corporate structuring, and produce investor-ready materials for bi-lateral, multi-lateral, and private sector donors and investors.
Depending on skills and experience, the Energy Finance Consultant may also assist with raising funds for the scale-up and commercialization of Pact’s consumer and small business lending activities within the energy sector.
