Deadline: 13-Jul-2016 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

The assignment output is expected to inform the Government of Niger, NIGELEC and the AfricaWorld Bank for the design of a World Bank-financed project component that aims to hybridize with PV and expand access to electricity in some of the existing micro-grids (centres isolés) operated by NIGELEC in throughout Niger.
The selected consultant firm will conduct a phased feasibility study of the potential options for hybridization and expanding access to electricity (households, businesses, etc.) of these mini-grids. Options for hybridization may include PV and options for storage capacity during night hours (batteries or diesel). After a first screening of the potential of the mini-grids to be hybridized and agreed technology option, the Consultant will conduct the feasibility studies (including demand assessments) of the selected mini-grids.
