The World Bank invites expressions of interest from consultants to help develop a renewable energy assistance program with emphasis on small hydropower and wind projects. Responses are due January 18, 2010.
In September, the bank recruited consultants to perform pre-feasibility studies of small hydropower sites in Mexico. (HydroWorld 9/21/09)
The World Bank now seeks consultants to analyze existing methodologies of other countries and design an economic evaluation methodology to determine renewable energy participation targets in Mexico’s generation mix. The consultant is to apply the methodologies to the Mexican power system, assess the process, and train a local group in the process.
The bank seeks firms with experts in: economic evaluation of participation targets for grid-connected renewables projects; generation expansion planning; and identification, evaluation, and development of non-conventional renewable generation projects, with an emphasis on wind and small hydro.
Expressions of interest and qualifications, in English are due January 18, electronically via the World Bank’s eConsultant Internet site, www.worldbank.org/wbgeconsultant. A short-list of firms is to be invited to submit proposals.
