Central Project Evaluation of the project IGEN Energy transition with distribution companies (DISCOMs), India

Project background

Arepo was commissioned by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) with the central project evaluation of the project “IGEN Energy transition with distribution companies (DISCOMs), India” which is a is a project under the umbrella of the Indo-German Energy Programme being implemented on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). In cooperation with the Ministry of Power (MoP), the TC module aims to strengthen selected DISCOMs in data analysis, data processing, operation and maintenance of distribution grids through the implementation of pilots and capacity building. Successful pilot measures will be scaled nationwide, and results will be used to improve the legal framework conditions.


Arepo evaluates the project and carries out a detailed analysis of all six OECD-DAC criteria. In addition, during the inception phase, we ask the stakeholders relevant to the project about their specific knowledge interests for the evaluation and then answer these questions as part of the evaluation. This ensures that the evaluation has the greatest possible benefit for the target group. A significant part of the evaluation involves on-site research.
