Energy Trust is a non-profit corporation that invests state funds in renewable energy and energy efficiency under an agreement with the Oregon Public Utility Commission. Among other renewables projects, it supports new hydropower projects and increases in existing capacity of up to 20 MW through its open solicitation program for renewables. (HNN 9/1/08)
The trust issued a request for qualifications to identify a pool of qualified consultants for its renewable power programs. Consultants would enter standard umbrella task assignment agreements under which they would be available for specific assignments ranging in cost from under $1,000 to $100,000. The budget for 2009 and 2010 is about $1 million.
Consultants may submit responses regarding any or all tasks described, for example, responding only to hydropower evaluations and not to geothermal, solar, or other such projects.
