Abt Associates is an engine for social impact, fueled by caring, curiosity, and cutting-edge research that moves people from vulnerability to security. Whether it’s welfare or weather disasters, the environment or economics, food security or financing a just energy transition, we address the world’s most pressing issues. Our work in 50 countries is diverse and so is our bold workforce.
Abt’s energy efforts sit at the nexus of infrastructure and sustainable development. We foster conditions for resilient clean-energy investments. Abt applies our technical expertise and cross-sectoral know-how to convene diverse actors from the public and private sectors to develop, fund, and implement inclusive energy solutions, such as a project to electrify health facilities across sub-Saharan Africa. Indeed, health care could be one of the biggest beneficiaries of moves to address climate change; extreme heat, floods, fires, and storms contribute to increased illnesses, new disease patterns, and health service disruption.
From energy planning to grid integration for renewables to competitive procurement for innovative energy technology, we work with clients to power people around the globe. We are catalyzing the clean energy transition in East Asia, strengthening capacity to reduce methane, and enhancing adaptive capacity and climate resilience around the world.
