The ECOWAS Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (“ECREEE”) has received financing from the World Bank toward the cost of the preparation of proposed Regional Off-Grid Electrification Project in West Africa and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services.
The consulting services (“the Services”) include the development of implementation frameworks to (i) electrify public institutions through standalone solar system by involving the private sector, and (ii) promote productive uses of electricity through standalone solar systems.
The broader focus is for frameworks that can be implemented in Niger and Nigeria with indications on their applicability and replicability across the whole target region of 19 countries, which are: Republic of Benin, Republic of Cabo Verde, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central Africa Republic, Republic of Chad, Republic of Côte D’Ivoire, Islamic Republic of the Gambia, Republic of Ghana, Republic of Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Republic of Liberia, Republic of Mali, Islamic Republic of Mauritania, Republic of Niger, Nigeria, Republic of Senegal, Republic of Sierra Leone and Republic of Togo.
The following tasks are foreseen for this assignment:
The Services will be carried out over a twenty-three (23) weeks period and the output will be a written report for each Niger and Nigeria in their national language and in English and a written report with recommendations on how to apply the identified framework to the whole West African region in English.
