The World Bank is launching a competitive procurement process to select consultant services for a new assessment and guidance on smart grid infrastructure. The objective of this activity is three-fold: (i) to take stock of the status of existing smart grid infrastructure in the developing world, (ii) to assess the experience of a sample of WBG client countries with smart grid infrastructure deployment and implementation and identify barriers and emerging lessons, (iii) to develop detailed guidance and recommendations on how the World Bank Group may assist clients in the deployment of smart grid infrastructure (both transmission and distribution) to enhance core outcomes and emerging challenges (e.g., improve overall efficiency and quality of service, integrated variable renewable energy and distributed generation).

The proposed work consists of three tasks: (i) an analysis of innovative approaches to Public-Private Partnerships in smart grid investments and the role of the public sector; (ii) Recommendations for application of PPP models for smart grid investments and identification of a project/project concept pipeline, and; (iii) Dissemination of study findings report, slide deck and supplementing material through internal and external outreach to target audience. The final output will be a report and slide deck. The report will emphasize experiences from ongoing smart grid PPP projects in developed and developing countries and must provide practical guidance on the design, preparation and implementation of smart grid projects that can be used by government officials, utility managers and World Bank Group staff.
