The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) is in search of consulting firms for the elaboration of the West African Clean Energy Corridor (WACEC) programme.
The deadline for submission of proposals is 24 August 2020, 11:00 UTC-1.
In 2013, ECOWAS authority of heads of states and governments adopted the ECOWAS Renewable Energy Policy (EREP), which aims to reach a share of renewable energy (excluding large hydro) in the region’s electricity mix of 10% in 2020 and 19% in 2030.
Including medium and large hydro, the share would reach 35% in 2020 and 48% in 2030. These objectives translate into an EREP target for grid-connected renewable energy of 2,425MW of additional installed capacity of renewable electricity by 2020 and 7,606MW by 2030.
Around 25% of the rural ECOWAS population will be served by renewable mini-grids and stand-alone systems by 2030.
The West African Clean Energy Corridor (WACEC) initiative, launched by ECREEE in partnership with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), seeks to bolster the development of utility-scale renewable power and its integration in West African power systems. The initiative builds on ongoing efforts by national and regional partners.
In this context, ECREEE with the support of USAID and GIZ launched a request for expression of interest (REOI), seeking the services of a consultant firm for the elaboration of the West African Clean Energy Corridor (WACEC) programme and its institutional implementation framework.
