This report presents the results of our review of U.S. efforts to develop Afghanistan's energy sector. Years of war and neglect have left Afghanistan's electrical sector in poor condition. Since 2002, U.S. and international donors have invested millions in the construction of energy infrastructure and building capacity to grow and sustain Afghanistan's energy sector. This report reviews the overall energy sector plans and U.S. agency programs in Afghanistan, focusing primarily on the energy assistance program of the largest U.S. contributor to this effort, the U.S. Agency for International Development. The report includes four recommendations for the Director of the U.S. Agency for International Development Mission to Afghanistan to improve the effectiveness of and planning for energy projects in Afghanistan.
