The World Bank is currently funding the feasibility study and detailed design of the Upper Arun Project Hydropower Project in eastern Nepal. As part of its due diligence, the Bank team wishes to hire an international consulting firm with a multi disciplinary team to commission a study to consider ways that the policy, institutional and planning framework can incorporate climate change and disaster risk into the hydropower sector in the Arun Valley in Nepal. The study will be funded by trust funds for a fixed lump sum contract. The multi-disciplinary team will consist of experienced international experts in disaster risk management, remote sensing, seismic risk assessment, regional geology, geomorphology, hydrological risks, sediment management, geohazards (including glacial hazards), climate change, community management and disaster risk management capable of undertaking a comprehensive integrated geohazard assessment.

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.

The objective of this work is to enable the integration of variable renewable energy (VRE) and battery storage into the Zanzibar electricity grid, thereby contributing to the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibars (RGOZ) efforts in energy security, diversification of supply options and financial and operational sustainability. The study will provide guidance to Zanzibar on the techno-economic underpinnings for developing and integrating variable renewable energy technologies into the power system, and the possible implications on structuring of the ownership of storage and solar as a PPP.

The envisaged scope of work will involve four tasks, as follows: (i) Grid integration analysis including an identification of substations that can accommodate solar and/or wind capacity without major upgrades, and those that would require major transmission and/or substation upgrades to allow the addition of VRE capacity; (ii) Assessment and ranking of renewable energy zones using the MapRE tool and utilization the best available data on solar and wind resource potential, transmission lines, elevation, land use, protected and sensitive areas, settlements, and other relevant data; and combining of this data with the results from the grid integration analysis; (iii) More detailed identification of potential sites for solar parks, using the results from the prior work to carry out a land availability analysis that investigates land ownership and other issues in a 10km radius around high ranking substations; (iv) Development of a solar park strategy, based on lessons learned from Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park, international experiences, discussions with key public sector agencies, and consultations with private sector developers.

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.
