The China Renewable Energy Development Project (REDP) invites expressions of interest from consultants to design a village electrification program using renewable energy including small hydropower. Responses are due November 30.
The REDP program received a World Bank loan and Global Environment Facility grant to advance renewable energy village electrification programs in China’s western regions.
The program seeks consultants to help develop the conceptual framework for the Song Dian Dao Cun program, in which a least-cost, sustainable program is to be designed in Xinjiang that would be replicable across other western provinces. Principal technologies are to include solar photovoltaics, small wind, and small hydropower.
An English- and Chinese-speaking team is to be hired for six to eight months in 2007. Consultants are to include experts in program planning and implementation, business and financial analysis, and systems engineering including solar, wind, hydro, and mini-grid systems.
Expressions of interest and qualifications are due to the address below by November 30.
