eC2: Improved Renewable Energy Integration and Electricity Services through Battery Storage in Distribution Network – TPDDL

Deadline: 25-Sep-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)


Battery electric storage systems (BESS) are increasingly being used for power system applications such as grid stabilization, load shifting, grid operational support, power quality improvement, reliability management and enhancing rooftop solar hosting capability. The BESSs could also perform an important role in providing arbitrage and increasing the value of renewable energy resources. The benefits that electric storage systems bring in are, namely: electric energy time shift or energy arbitrage, frequency regulation, voltage and reactive power support, Peak /congestion management, Technical loss reduction and asset life enhancement, distribution upgrade deferral, spinning, non-spinning, and supplemental (black start) reserves, power quality improvement, power reliability improvement and demand charge management. BESS systems at the distribution level may displace diesel gensets which commonly backstop system reliability.

eC2: Small Scale Solar PV Portfolio: Assessment of battery storage options

Deadline: 11-Jul-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) index

Locating smaller, utility-scale facilities closer to population centers can reduce reliance on long transmission lines that are vulnerable to damage during storms. It also means that if one facility goes down, others are still able to operate. This strategy of developing decentralized generation has already been utilized in more developed economies and is particularly relevant in areas that are prone to natural disasters. Batteries can provide backup power in the case of outages caused by storms and help utilities meet spikes in power demand. IFC is assessing the development of small solar PV sites and assessing whether battery storage could be included as part of the solar PV plants to offset the intermittency and provide other benefits. This consultancy is focused on the analysis of the battery storage options.

eC2: Battery storage Installation in Senegal. Preparation of tender documents and implementation support

Deadline: 20-Mar-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) index

With the objective of facilitating the development and integration of renewable energies in Senegal, this study aims to prepare the tender documents to put in place battery storage (60MW capacity 30mn 1h for frequency regulation) and their integration in the electricity network for their installation and operation in the short term. The Consultant should prepare the tender documents for the installation, integration of these batteries and their operationalization during one year. Based on the existing studies, the Consultant should confirm the size and location of the battery storage.

Powering New Markets for Battery Storage


  • A new, first-of-its-kind $1 billion World Bank Group program aims to help fast-track investments in battery storage, so it can be deployed affordably and at scale in middle-income and developing countries, including some of the fastest growing economies in the world.
  • Battery storage allows for wind and solar energy to be used at a much greater scale by making it possible to store electricity and use it when it is needed most.
  • The program, which is expected to mobilize another $4 billion, will help countries leapfrog to a new era of energy technology and improve their energy security and grid stability while bolstering global efforts to transition to clean energy.
