The objective of this assignment is to support the Government of DRC in attracting the private sector for the electrification of provincial capitals. To this end, the consultant will review the legal/regulatory/PPP framework and tools, use the results of a technical prefeasibility study to develop financial models for 2 to 4 provinces, consult local/regional/international private operators/utilities, develop appropriate PPP contract samples, assist the government over the procurement process, and develop a comprehensive capacity strengthening plan for 2 to 4 provincial governments and the regulator.

The Government of Angola (GoA) has requested support from the World Bank Group to complete a National Electrification Analysis (NEA), addressing all key aspects of investment planning, institutional and contracting arrangements, and needed financing and regulations for providing reliable electricity service, ultimately achieving the national electricity access targets. Thus, the World Bank Group is seeking to hire a consulting firm or consortium to help complete the NEA. The scope of work encompasses: (a) preparation of a geographic information system (GIS)-based database; (b) identification of least-cost electrification options based on different locations/density levels/electricity needs; and (c) identification of suitable implementation options for scaling up electrification in Angola in line with national electricity access targets.

To support the improvement of STEGs financial, technical, and commercial performance by (i) undertaking an operational and management diagnosis of the utility; (ii) designing a detailed plan for STEG to carry out necessary investments and reforms to meet the targets of its performance contract; and (iii) determining the current revenue requirement of STEG based on their cost structure and identifying the efficient revenue requirement for the next 10 years based on the improvements proposed in the performance improvement plan above.

Objective: The objective of this assignment is to prepare a geospatial analysis and present the least cost options for electrification for villages located within the radio of 100 km of the substations of the OMVG in The Gambia and Guinea Bissau, and the Substations of the OMVS in Mali. The analysis will provide detailed estimation of investment and operating cost requirements.

IFC is seeking support on the development of a high-level rural electrification strategy to be delivered to the Government of Togo. The objective of this engagement will be to outline a clear vision and compelling strategy for achieving universal electrification in Togo, with a focus on off-grid systems. In this context, three specific analyses will be undertaken, namely: (i) identification of the high-level market potential for mini-grid and off-grid systems; (ii) articulation of potential business models that would be applicable in the context of Togo, covering private sector-led approaches, public-private partnership approaches, and public sector-led approaches; and (iii) indication of associated financing requirements, both concessional and commercial. This work will largely rely on existing data, specifically the parts of the country that have already been identified as likely to rely on off-grid systems for electrification at the short to medium terms.
The engagement would need to be completed by January 31 2018, and will require fluency in both English and French. Continue reading

Specifically, the objectives of this assignment are threefold:
1. Develop a set of industry compatible data standards for electrification models data inputs and modelling outputs, primarily to facilitate data inputs reuse and comparability of outputs across models and countries;
2. Develop a scenario-based global model of least-cost electrification planning for universal access for all countries with electrification rate below 90% (as per World Bank Global Tracking Framework 2017)
3. Develop a web mapping application that demonstrates the global models results, and allows users to adjust certain parameters that affect least cost electrification planning, such as but not limited to:
a. Technology costs
b. Cost of diesel
c. Electrification level targeted
d. Timeline considered for universal access
The web mapping platform will need to ensure compatibility leveraging data standards specified as part of this assignment, notably to allow users to visualize other or future modelling results.

IFC is seeking to develop new datasets that will enable faster and more accurate market analysis for DESCOs operating in Tanzania, including household locations and indicators on ability to pay, potential for productive uses of electricity and up-to-date data on national electricity grid transmission and distribution line locations. Collectively, it is expected that these datasets will help DESCOs operating in, or seeking to enter, Tanzania to narrow down geographic areas that could be interesting markets for their off-grid energy services. Datasets should of sufficient detail and quality to inform and prioritize the parallel project on detailed mapping of priority villages and households. In addition, it should enable preliminary assessment of market potentials and be useful in the wider rural energy sector and beyond. The data should be presented online in a manner that allows for affordable updating on a regular basis, with intuitive presentation of the results and prioritization of feasible off-grid villages. IFC is seeking the services of a specialist firm to develop these datasets and prioritize detailed household mapping; to disseminate them in an accessible manner; and to and maintain the data up-to-date.
