Madhya Pradesh, the central state of India, has been in the forefront to contribute
significantly towards promotion of clean energy solutions in the country as well as globally. To take such initiatives forward, Government of MP through its agency Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Limited (RUMS) – has requested the World Bank to support them on new technologies such as floating solar. On request of the Government of India, World Bank is already supporting Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI), under Innovations in Solar Power & Hybrid technologies project, to invest in early demonstration projects but with an objective to also build a robust pipeline of such projects while developing the policy and regulatory ecosystem. As part of deepening the market for floating solar projects in the country, engagement with MP will be an important step. This is specifically important as lack of experience in deploying several of these technologies in India, and globally, at scale is considered as a major constraint by various developers, financiers and other stakeholders.
World Bank will support RUMS and Narmada Hydroelectric Development Corporation (NHDC) in exploring potential of floating solar project in one of the states water bodies Omkareshwar Dam in Khandwa district of MP.

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.
