AECF 2017-22 Renewable Energy and Adaptation to Climate Technologies (REACT) - REACT - Liberia USD 419 428

Energy generation, renewable sources - multiple technologies

Description

The contribution consists of support to a Challenge Fund; REACT (Renewable Energy, Adaptation and Climate Change Technology). REACT - sub-Saharan Africa, is administered by Afica Enterprise Challenge Fund Ltd (AECF), a non-profit company with AGRA (African Green Revolution) as the sole owner/member. AGRA is a "“non profit organization registered in Washington State as a public charity”. The contribution includes components in seven of Sweden's cooperation countries and the regional strategy for sub-Saharan Africa. The objective of REACT is to stimulate small and medium-sized companies, to develop business models, services and products in renewable energy and energy efficiency that improve the lives of the poor. The idea is that companies supported by REACT are prepared to take risks, which they otherwise would not take. The ideas put forward by the companies, are identified through competitions in the respective countries. Applications are assessed on the basis of clear and transparent criteria and in three separate steps - this, to assure an independent and transparent process. REACT also supports capacity development of enterprises in a variety of areas, brokering service for successful companies to access capital for scaling up, learning and advocacy on national and regional issues (laws, rules, licensing, trade barriers etc.). The decision on the intervention covers five years and amounts to 400 000 000 SEK.

Energy generation, renewable sources - multiple technologies

Description

The overarching objective of the proposed programme is to stimulate socio-economic development and the living conditions of people living in poverty in rural areas of Liberia by increasing access to electricity based on renewable energy sources by engaging the private sector to co-invest in building, operating and expanding electricity services in the distribution networks in the South East of Liberia. The programme will be complemented by two supporting measures, investing in access roads and in continued support to the reform process with the aim of ensuring an enabling regulatory environment. Ensuring physical access by road is expected to increase interest for participation from prospective electricity service providers as roads will lower the investment costs for building and maintaining renewable energy power plants and distribution grids compared to air-lifting equipment; and as roads also play a role in stimulating economic growth and poverty reduction, enabling goods and services to be brought to market and thereby also playing a key role in enabling growth in electricity demand, making the investments more viable. This is especially important in isolated grids where there are few options to sell surplus power outside the geographical boundaries of the mini-grid. This assignment serves to procure a consultant to assist the Government of Liberia (Rural & Renewable Energy Agency (RREA)) to prepare a Programme Document in line with the Swedish development cooperation policies. The objective is to have a fully-fledged Programme Document incorporating the latest developments in the energy sector.
