Deadline: 07-Apr-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) energy

Objective:   The objective of this study is to evaluate the potential to develop an energy access program exploiting renewable sources, focused on two market sectors: i) solar lighting devices (solar lanterns and solar home systems, SHS) and ii) solar water heaters (SWH) based on sound market intelligence. It includes development of an initial concept for a SHS program with the purpose of developing a functioning market for supply, after-sales service and financing of such systems for the electrification of off-grid areas in Afghanistan. It is expected that the consultant will assess the current market conditions from the supply side (i.e. solar equipment and micro-finance providers) and the demand side, i.e. consumers. On the supply side, information should be gathered through stakeholder interviews and field visits whereas for the consumer side, a detailed market intelligence survey is expected to be conducted (household level, suggested 1,600 interviews). Based on the data collected, the consultant is expected to develop an initial concept for a SHS program.
