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.

A reputed firm with extensive experience in household surveys and, preferably, expertise on energy sector including on-grid and off-grid solutions including mini-grid is sought to conduct the household, community/facility, and mini-grid operator survey to establish the baseline on energy access in the Myanmar using the multi-tier framework approach to track progress towards SDG7 and SE4ALL goal. The survey will be nationally representative and administered to both urban and rural localities. The firm will work with the World Bank-ESMAP to pre-test, finalize and implement the survey. Data collection should be carefully monitored to ensure high quality information. After completing the fieldwork, the firm will deliver the final dataset and summary report to the World Bank-ESMAP. Additional details on the scope of work will be available in the Terms of Reference (TOR).

The Rural Electrification Authority (REA) was established in 2006 under the Energy Act to enhance electricity supply in rural areas. REA has played a significant role in the sector through the grid extension projects and off-grid solutions. The focus of REA is to play an increasing role in the overall socio-economic development of Kenyan citizens. The Government has set up an ambitious target of achieving universal access by 2020 and has provided increased support to the energy sector so as to achieve the desired electrification goals.

Every year over 4 million people, mostly women and children, die due to air pollution caused by unhealthy cookstoves and other heat sources. On Tuesday, September 29, your Netherlands Embassy’s NL4WorldBank team, in close cooperation with the World Bank Group, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, organized the first ever Clean Cookstove Webinar to address this issue.
How it works
Geared towards the Dutch private sector, the webinar offered the participants the chance to pitch their companies’ cookstove or related product to a group of World Bank staff all working on cookstove projects across the world. Continue reading →
