eC2: Cold chain energy efficiency in India: Analysis of EE opportunities in pack houses

Deadline: 05-Feb-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) th

The objective of this assignment is to support the Bureau of Energy Efficiency in developing options for enhancing the energy efficiency of pack-houses in India. 

The assignment objective will be achieved through an analysis of current energy consumption trends in different types of pack-houses, assessments of the implications of capacity addition projections, identification of energy efficiency improvement opportunities in pack houses, and drawing lessons from relevant experience in India and internationally. The assignment is expected to result in a set of recommendations for BEE action to promote energy efficiency in the cold chain, pack-houses in particular. Actions that BEE may consider in this area can include specific guidance related to equipment and appliance, insulation, building design, and ancillary equipment that can minimize energy consumption.

eC2: Capacity Building for Integration of Variable Renewable Energy into ZESCO’s Grid Operations

Deadline: 19-Mar-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) India Energy

Objective:  IFC is looking for a consulting firm (the Consultant) to support ZESCO in assessing the integration of variable renewable energy (VRE) into the power system of Zambia. ZESCO is a government-owned electricity utility in Zambia. The assignment aims to build the capacity of ZESCO in relation to the integration of VRE in order to: i) ensure the continued stability of the system as the penetration of variable renewable energy (VRE) increases and ii) ensure the efficient integration of VRE capacity. The scope of work will include a comprehensive review of ZESCO’s existing grid practices in order to determine the infrastructure and operational constraints that have to be addressed to facilitate the targeted levels of VRE penetration. The assignment also includes the identification and practical implementation of a range of measures and system upgrades. In addition, the assignment is to review and recommend improvements to the existing Grid Code for appropriateness for VRE integration.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY REVIEW OF DAR ES SALAAM CITY WATER AND SEWERAGE SERVICES

Deadline:  23-Nov-2015 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washingtlight-bulb-297489_640on D.C.)

The Ministry of Water (MoW) has initiated a reform process to reorganize the Dar es Salaam Water and Sewerage Authority (DAWASA) and the Dar es Salaam Water and Sewerage Corporation (DAWASCo) who are responsible for delivery of water and sewerage services in the city. Under the proposed reorganization, DAWASA will be responsible for bulk water production and wastewater treatment, while DAWASCO will be the downstream distributor of water supply and will be responsible for sewerage service provision for the city. In their new mandate, they will both be major consumers of energy.

The objective of this assignment is to audit the energy efficiency in the operations of DAWASA and DAWASCO, leading to suggestions for improvement in utilization of energy and reducing costs.
