Castalia
Castalia

Castalia is an international strategic advisory firm, founded in Paris in 1980, dedicated to improving infrastructure service delivery, through innovative and practical solutions, to meet both social and business goals. Castalia has undertaken infrastructure assignments in 142 countries, and energy sector assignments in 98 countries, working from our offices in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, and France. Our staff includes experts in finance, economics, law and institutional design; with language capabilities in Arabic, English, Russian, French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese. Our clients span a range of governments, multilateral lending agencies, and private companies, illustrating the firm’s ability to analyze and understand economic and policy issues from a range of perspectives.
Castalia has a long track record advising in the energy sector worldwide, including in Africa and Middle East. In Abu Dhabi, we recommended how to improve ADWEC’s (independent single buyer of electricity and water) competitive procurement process and expanded its mandate from gas to RE procurement, with a special focus on photovoltaic solar. The World Bank has hired Castalia to advise the Government of Jordan on options for designing an organizational structure and restructuring the National Electric Production Company (NEPCO).
Castalia has extensive experience in evaluating the viability of renewable energy technologies, especially assessing the impact of their integration on electric grids, including for solar PV. In South Africa, Castalia was subcontracted by WSP to perform a feasibility study for rooftop solar PV installations on government buildings in Cape Town. We recently prepared a paper for the Inter-American Development Bank on how to promote generation with renewable energy with storage in Latin America and the Caribbean. We have also advised on electricity sector regulatory regimes, utilities, and private sector participation reforms for improving power sector performance in more than 15 countries throughout the region.
