Knowledge Management Completed Project Portfolio

Our Senior Advisors and Technical Experts have completed the following assignments:

Energy Smart Fund Database, Monitoring & Evaluation System, Barbados (2016-Present)
The overall objective of the Smart Fund Program’s is to promote the increased use of Renewable Energy (RE) and the implementation of Energy Efficiency (EE) measures by providing financial and technical support to RE and EE projects. The Government of Barbados (GoB) hired Partnership International to implement a program of oversight and reporting to ensure that the Government’s objectives are reached in relation to the Results Framework, Indicator Matrix, and Evaluation Methodology as predetermined under the program. PI was commissioned to provide technical assistance to design, develop, implement, and provide training on the use of an Energy Smart Fund Database Monitoring and Evaluation Database System that facilitated the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of the technical aspects of the program’s outputs by tracking the progress and impacts of the program based on various established indicators. ICT technical requirements included: an approach to satisfy Program Results Framework needs, Indicator Matrix, and Evaluation Methodology; technology preference choices (databases, reporting, integration methods, systems hosting, etc.); identification of existing data collection systems and processes to be used; evaluation and reporting requirements (baseline energy demand/use calculation, performance adjustments for weather conditions, analysis needs, report access and format, etc.); and systems operating requirements (backup/recovery, system administration, database administration, etc.).

Africa Geothermal Center of Excellence and Geo Portal, Kenya (2015-Present)
The African Rift Center of Excellence and accompanying Geo Portal data and knowledge bank provide a useful repository for capacity building that could benefit African Rift countries at large. Funded by ICEIDA and the Nordic Development Fund, the Partnership International Team has been working with the Government of Kenya (GoK) to help develop an African Geothermal Center of Excellence (CoE). Given the GoK’s role as the host for the CoE, PI has carried out research on a prospective data management system for East Africa geothermal developments. With its great wealth of geothermal resource development, Kenya is an ideal place to develop the first Geo Portal in East Africa. Presently, PI is working with the Kenya Ministry of Energy and Petroleum (MoEP) to develop their Geothermal Data and Content Management technology within the framework of the CoE. Towards this goal, PI shall take a two-tiered approach in utilizing the data management platform: 1) supporting a Kenya Geo Portal within a Geo Data and Content Network that could provide a greater data and knowledge base 2) supporting the CoE’s training/capacity building needs through Geo Data and Content Network Sharing. The MoEP shall manage the Kenya Geo Portal, and approved geothermal data and content could be shared and disseminated through this secure CoE network. Such content could be either publicly accessible via the web or privately secured with permission-based access that is controlled by content and data owned by MoEP or GDC or KenGen (each with secure access points enabling full control of their own data).

Geothermal Handbook and Investment Database, Indonesia (2011-2014)
With funding from KfW, Partnership International provided two-years of technical, ICT, financial, and legal consulting to the Indonesian State Ministry of National Development Planning (BAPPENAS) to effectively plan and coordinate public and private investments in the geothermal sector. Our objective was to develop a Geothermal Handbook and Investment Database "Geo Portal" with valuable geothermal sight specific data (in the portal's "Data Bank") to provide support for the planning and execution of geothermal projects and to accelerate the development of geothermal-based greenfield and brownfield projects. The Geothermal Investment Database was developed in collaboration with BAPPENAS staff to help attract public and private financing, and to support the coordination of this effort among ministries, departments, local government authorities, public and private financing institutions, and NGOs.

Database of Non-Traditional Infrastructure Investors, United States
As an Investment Consultant to the PPIAF, PI's expert assisted in preparing a strategy and methodology for attracting nontraditional infrastructure investors in the World Bank.

SMEs Balkan Web Portal, The Balkans
As a consultant to the World Bank/IFC, PI's expert developed a SMEs Balkan Web Portal comprising: regional business news, e-government forms, information resource database, local advisors and consultants, regional and international trade, and investment and financing resources.
