International Consultancy (Industry Specialist on assembly & manufacturing of off-grid RETs)
BACKGROUND

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are working with the Nigeria Government to implement a climate change mitigation project titled “Derisking Sustainable Off-grid Lighting Solutions” in Nigeria.


The overall objective of this project is to develop a private sector-led technology value for making off-grid renewable energy technologies, such as solar lanterns and solar home systems, available to base-of-pyramid rural households who would not be electrified at least until after 2025.


The project rationale is underpinned by a novel approach to derisk private sector investments in the market for rural decentralised renewable energy access. This will be achieved through three outcomes:
(i) putting in place appropriate policies, programmes and regulations that address policy, awareness and financial barriers to facilitate investment in sustainable off-grid lighting solutions and corresponding business models.
(ii) off-grid lighting providers are operating and have access to working capital and equipment, and
(iii) good practices, lessons learned, market assessments, demand-supply surveys, delivery models and business models are documented to support replication and scaling-up of project results.


In the light of the foregoing, consultants are required to conduct these activities and present findings before stakeholders. Consultants must carry out their work to guarantee the accuracy and pertinence of the project objectives.
