The World Bank seeks expressions of interest from consultants to help draft laws and regulations to encourage development of renewable energy, including hydropower, in Kosovo. Responses are due October 9.
With most of its electricity generation supplied by coal, Kosovo seeks to increase the amount of electricity supplied by renewables, in line with goals of the European Union, which it hopes to join. Kosovo currently obtains about 3.15 percent of its electricity from hydropower, equal to 10.82 thousand metric tons of oil equivalent (ktoe).
The World Bank invites consultants to submit expressions of interest and qualifications to develop a framework of legislation and regulations to encourage and facilitate economically feasible practical development of renewable energy projects in Kosovo. Terms of reference for the work propose to nearly double the amount of Kosovo hydropower, to 19.81 ktoe, by 2016.
Draft terms of reference may be obtained from the World Bank’s Internet site, http://econsult.worldbank.org/suite/public/viewPublishedNotifications.do, under Notice No. 100019008.
Expressions of interest and qualifications, in English, are to be submitted by October 9 on the Internet at www.worldbank.org/wbgeconsultant. A short list of firms is to be invited to submit proposals.
