New Zealand’s Three-Water Infrastructure Stocktake

Castalia carried out a stocktake of New Zealand’s stormwater infrastructure and wrote an issues paper that described the complexity of stormwater management across the country.

Review of the Electricity Pricing Commissioner’s Power, Australia

Castalia provided an independent opinion to the New South Wales Government and Parliament on the adequacy of the powers of the new Electricity Price Commissioner. The Government promised that a planned electricity privatization would not increase electricity prices, but there was concern that the Electricity Price Commissioner, charged with ensuring this, lacked the necessary powers.

Raising Viability Gap Funding for Biomass Plant, Côte d’Ivoire

Castalia helped a private equity firm identify organizations able to provide viability gap funding for 46 MW biomass plant in Côte d’Ivoire. The government of Côte d’Ivoire’s expectations for the tariff to be paid for power from the biomass plant created a viability gap which needed grant funding to close.

PPP Project Screening and Prioritization for Kenya

Castalia identified a set of 15 first-mover PPP projects across 6 sectors from the Government of Kenya’s existing PPP pipeline and new candidate projects. We trained government officials on PPP project preparation, evaluation, and coordination processes. Despite an improved framework for PPPs, PPP projects in Kenya were not reaching financial close. The Government of Kenya was incurring costs in preparing projects, and people in Kenya were not receiving essential infrastructure services.

Model for Private Finance of Power Transmission, Africa

Castalia wrote Linking Up: Public-Private Partnerships in Power Transmission in Africa, a guide to enabling private finance of electricity transmission infrastructure in Africa. Reliance on public finance had constrained investment in power transmission, with the result that electricity was more expensive and less reliable than it should be.

Natural Gas Development: Open Access and On-Shore Uses, Papua New Guinea

Castalia developed policies requiring firms exporting natural gas from Papua New Guinea to also supply on-shore customers, and to allow other firms to access their pipelines. While PNG’s natural gas export business was flourishing, local customers could not access gas, and smaller fields were not being developed due to lack of pipeline access.
