II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Bangladesh is embracing both conventional and renewable sources of energy to meet its existing and steadily growing demand for power. In this process, the country is aiming at exploiting its available solar potential, predominantly promoting grid-connected solar power.

Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency is one of the priority areas of German Development Cooperation in Bangladesh. The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Programme (REEEP II) is a bilateral technical cooperation programme between German and Bangladesh Government, supported by the Bangladesh Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources (MPEMR) and implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). REEEP II works with the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) to strengthen its efforts for sustainable energy development. Together with public, private and civil society actors, the programme will provide strategic and implementation support for a national level awareness campaign on energy efficiency and conservation. REEEP II contributes to the national dissemination of solar rooftop programme through supporting the establishment of a national service desk and supplementary online portal.

Moreover, the Programme supports the government to develop conducive sustainable energy policies and regulations and build the capacity of relevant national public and private agencies, civil society to sustain the development impact.

REEEP II aims to work with the government, private sector and civil society actors to strengthen sustainable energy development in Bangladesh.

The project will identify specific organisational development needs for the Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA) and relevant sector stakeholders and will promote cooperation among those actors to achieve the national target for renewable energy and energy efficiency. Moreover, the programme will support the government to develop conducive energy policies and regulations to sustain developmental impacts.

To maximise the utilisation of solar energy, the government aims to disseminate grid connected solar rooftops at a large scale through net-metering scheme. The project will support this endeavour through facilitating the establishment of a dedicated national rooftop service desk at SREDA and accompanying online portal for consumers and service providers. There will also be accompanied measures on quality assurance and market facilitation.

Technical measures regarding energy efficiency can only be sustained when public and institutional awareness and commitment is ensured. The project will support the formulation of a national awareness raising strategy for energy efficiency and conservation. Relevant public, private and civil society actors will be actively engaged with the subsequent campaign to maximise impact of the initiatives.

The overall progress in sector development will be monitored both qualitatively and quantitatively and will be integrated with centralized monitoring system at SREDA.

The project is being implemented from November 2018 and will continue till October 2021.

GIZ is seeking proposals from suitable international consulting farms, to support implementing REEEP II's Renewable Energy Component to establish a national service desk at SREDA.
