eC2: Guidelines to maximize socio-economic benefits triggered by renewable energy deployment

Deadline:    31-Mar-2021 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)Renewable-energy

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.
