eC2: Lighting Africa/Global: Quality Assurance Manager under ACE Program

Deadline: 23-Feb-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) Solar-street-lights-in-Guinea1

Lighting Africa/Global program is a joint IFC/World Bank initiative that seeks to build sustainable markets for affordable, high quality, modern solar lighting and energy products for people not connected to grid electricity.  There are, however, impediments in many markets in Sub-Saharan Africa that must be addressed to enable growth of the sector in the region. One key barrier is the lack of quality standards that has resulted in markets being flooded by low quality products thus undermining consumer confidence.  In response to these market failures, working with UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), the program has developed the Africa Clean Energy (ACE) program which has the objective of addressing a host of market barriers that have served to make these markets unattractive to potential manufacturers and distributors.  Lighting Global is therefore looking for a firm to implement the quality assurance component and activities under the ACE program.
