Tetra Tech will help the U.S. Agency for International Development promote the use of renewable energies and mitigate deforestation in the Republic of Zambia in southern Africa under a five-year, $25 million contract.

A team of Tetra Tech analysts and scientists will work to gather data on the factors preventing locals from using alternative energy sources, and carry out data analytics-enabled market research for available technologies, the company said Thursday.

The company will also help Zambia adopt renewable fuel technologies as part of the contract.

The project is a part of USAID's Alternatives to Charcoal Activity, a program that aims to reduce poverty and counter the effects of climate change in the African country.

Dan Batrack, CEO and chairman at Tetra Tech, said the company has assisted USAID in its efforts to promote green energy and handle Africa's natural resources for 40 years.
