Burundi has over 900 health centers and more than 1,400 secondary and vocational schools, out of which the majority is not electrified. The World Bank seeks to hire the services of a firm to i) take stock of the electrification status and overall energy use of Health and Education Facilities in Burundi and ii) to design standardized solar-powered service packages to meet their current and future needs. The assignment should assess a representative share of those unelectrified facilities. A particular emphasis will be put on ways to ensure maintenance and operation of the systems, as one of the big challenges for long-term project success.

Lighting Africa is a joint World Bank/IFC program launched in 2007 to accelerate the development of markets for modern off grid lighting and energy products in Africa where majority of the population use expensive, hazardous and low quality fuel- based lighting products. The program was piloted in Kenya and Ghana but has now been replicated in 10 countries across Africa (including Tanzania) and Asia.
Tanzania has continued to face grid expansion challenges with the Ministry of Energy and Minerals estimating 40% of the countries total population and only 10% of rural households have access to electricity.
The program is seeking a market research firm to assess the development of the solar off-grid lighting market in Tanzania covering but not limited to: the supply chain (retailers) carrying the products; their penetration in the rural market; estimated market share of quality verified products; an overview of the after sales service structure; and innovative business models e.g. Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGo) etc. that are in the market.
