The European Investment Bank (EIB) invites applications for pre-qualification to help perform due diligence on energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, including small hydropower, in China. Responses are due May 2.
EIB has provided Climate Change Framework Loans to China for renewables such as small hydropower, wind, biomass, solar, and geothermal sources, as well as for energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction projects. China said in 2009 it would develop 10 small hydro projects in Hubei Province with EIB funding.
EIB plans to award up to three framework agreements worth a total of 1.5 million euros (US$2.17 million) over four years. Work is to include project screening and appraisal, assistance in developing procurement plans and tender documents, help in fulfilling EIB requirements, providing Clean Development Mechanism advice, and performing other associated due diligence tasks.
Responses in English are due by 11:59 p.m. May 2 to the address below. EIB plans to invite five to eight short-listed firms to bid.
