This assignment will support Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) of the World Bank to detail the initial version of the Guidelines for the Sustainable Renewables Risk Mitigation Initiative (SRMI): A Sure Path to Sustainable Solar with the operational guidance for governments on how to maximize socio-economic benefits of renewable energy (RE) while deploying sustainable RE programs. These guidelines will aim at (i) providing an overview of the RE value chain in terms of components/jobs and skills required as well as (ii) articulating the key steps (and identifying the associated entry points) to maximize the socio economic benefits of the RE programs, leveraging the associated bidding processes.
The following technologies are to be considered under this assignment:
Part 1: solar (PV with battery storage and CSP with thermal storage) and onshore wind to be studied in detail during the assignment.
Part 2: geothermal to be incorporated from materials provided by the World Bank.

To ascertain the potential energy savings and cost reductions, the World Bank will engage a consultant to conduct a detailed energy and water audit of the Cutzamala system to identify, assess and recommend opportunities for improving energy efficiency and load management.
The assignment is expected to be conducted in three Phases:
Inception Phase Preliminary Assessment
Phase I Assessment of energy efficiency, load management & renewable energy opportunities
Phase II Identification and assessment of new technologies and financing options

The PPIAF-financed activity provides technical assistance and capacity building to the Government to successfully implement these priority actions. In this context, the World Bank is seeking a Technical Advisor to support Government in strategic and operational decisions related to the scale up of distributed renewable energy in Haiti, in particular through developing public-private partnerships (PPP) options for retrofitting of existing utility/municipal mini grids, and building incentives for investments in new mini grids. This will be done through the provision of capacity building, facilitation of lessons learned from similar country contexts and other similar technical advice.
Deadline: 22-Feb-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)
Objective: The assignment has five objectives: (i) Analyze the technical and commercial constraints present in the dispatch system through discussions with NTDC and CPPA, and recommend specific improvements that could be implemented to increase the flexibility in the grid of the future generation and by adapting the current utilization of the installed generators; (ii) Analyze the actual and forecasted electricity demand and planned generation to provide technical inputs to the least-cost planning; (iii) Support and train the planning team (NTDC) in running a thorough least-cost planning tool that can integrate the variability of solar, wind and hydro as well as price ancillary services; (iv) Identify and propose specific changes to the energy market to increase flexibility in the system and price ancillary services looking at Energy Purchase Agreements (EPA), grid code requirements and ancillary service market; and (v) Build the capacity of the Client agencies to continue and further build on the analysis following the completion of this assignment.
