Tender Details

Tenders are invited for Conduction of Two PPP Feasibility Studies for Two Wind Projects in Ethiopia. Ethiopia has vast and largely unharnessed clean energy resources. Domestic electricity demand is expected to continue growing driven by industrialization and a renewed focus on electrification. While Ethiopia has an ambition of scaling-up its electricity generation portfolio, the domestic power generation mix is highly dependent on hydro resources, which are largely impacted by the varying patterns of rainfall. Ethiopia Electric Power (EEP) is therefore planning to diversify its power generation system by exploiting other renewable energy sources. Least-cost generation expansion plans for Ethiopia foresee substantial additions of solar and wind power projects to be commissioned by 2030, which would contribute to meeting domestic and export demand at low cost, while improving system resilience to droughts and climate change. In front of such bold sector strategy, the power sector does not have the ability to continue self-financing its growth, as Ethiopia-s traditional model of public financing for new investments in the power sector combined with exceptionally low tariffs has compromised the financial health of the national utility particularly when significant capital investments are necessary. The Government of Ethiopia (GoE) is therefore transitioning from public generation investments to Public Private Partnership approaches, enabled by the landmark PPP Proclamation adopted in the recent years. As part of this overall initiative the GoE has been scaling-up its efforts for exploitation of wind power potential in the country by assessing multiple sites for wind farm development through Public-Private Partnership models. Further to a pre-feasibility analysis of potential wind farm sites and the resulting approval of a suitable subset of candidates for proceeding to the appraisal phase by the PPP Board, Expertise France together with Agénce Française du Développement have embarked on supporting the execution of dedicated feasibility studies for two specific wind farms to be located in the Eastern part of the country, each of approx. 150 MW capacity.
