Belgium-Brussels: Studies on the EU energy system in support of policy
Section I: Contracting authority
Main address: http://ec.europa.eu/energy/index_en.htm
Section II: Object
Studies on the EU energy system in support of policy.
In the 2020 and 2030 climate-energy packages, the EU committed to:
— lower greenhouse gas emissions by 20 % in 2020 with respect to 1990 and by 40 % in 2030,
— reach a share of renewables of 20 % by 2020 and at least 27 % by 2030,
— increase energy efficiency levels by 20 % in 2020 and 27 % by 2030.
These targets are obviously contributing to a stronger security of supply (in 2013, more than 50 % of EU energy was imported), a more sustainable energy sector, ideally without affecting competitiveness.
In this landscape, the electricity network has a central role to play. In 2014, 26 % of the EU's power was generated from renewables. About 10 % of the total EU electricity is sourced from variable renewable electricity (such as wind and solar). Owing to the increasing number of appliances and to the expected penetration of heat pumps and electric vehicles, the share of electricity in the overall energy consumption is expected to rise and the share of renewables in electricity could be as high as 50 % by 2030 with an important contribution from variable sources.
The tasks will be performed in the contractor's premises. All meetings between the contractor and the Commission shall be held on Commission's premises in Brussels, unless agreed otherwise with the EC.
For each of the studies, in addition of delivering high quality reports, the tenderers will deliver clear and synthetic slides and presentations, all using harmonised and streamlined templates. Minutes of the dissemination events, lists of participants and a structured collection of the presentations under electronic form will be provided and made available on the dissemination platform mentioned under 3.3 Tasks. While the intention is to ultimately publish most of the results, some of the studies may be kept for internal dissemination to the European Commission services only. This will be made clear in the terms of reference of the studies.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Information and formalities necessary for evaluating if the requirements are met: The tenderer's identification form in Annex 1 shall be filled in and signed by:
— the tenderer (including any member of a consortium or grouping),
— subcontractor(s) whose share of the work represents more than 20 % of the contract.
In order to prove their legal capacity and their status, all tenderers (including any member of a consortium or grouping) must provide a signed legal entity form with its supporting evidence. The form is available on:
Tenderers that are already registered in the contracting authority's accounting system (i.e. they have already been direct contractors) must provide the form but are not obliged to provide the supporting evidence.
If it has not been included with the legal entity form, tenderers must provide the following information.
— for legal persons, a legible copy of the notice of appointment of the persons authorised to represent the tenderer in dealings with third parties and in legal proceedings, or a copy of the publication of such appointment if the legislation which applies to the legal entity concerned requires such publication. Any delegation of this authorisation to another representative not indicated in the official appointment must be evidenced,
— for natural persons, where applicable, a proof of registration on a professional or trade register or any other official document showing the registration number.
The tenderer (only the leader in case of joint tender) must provide a financial identification form and supporting documents. The form is available on: http://ec.europa.eu/budget/contracts_grants/info_contracts/index_en.cfm
Section IV: Procedure
Directorate-General for Energy, rue Demot 24, 3rd floor, room 58, 1040 Brussels, BELGIUM.
Tenderers may attend the meeting but be represented by not more than 1 person. At the end of the opening session, the chairperson of the opening committee will indicate the names of the tenderers and the decision concerning the admissibility of each offer received. The prices mentioned in the bids will not be communicated.
