The EBRD intends to launch a “Sustainable Bioenergy Value Chain Innovation” Programme in Ukraine to develop sustainable bioenergy value chains leading to significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions. Improved agri-waste value chains are expected to (1) promote investments in innovative bioenergy technologies and practices associated with the use of agricultural residues and waste and (2) support Ukraine in meeting its target to increase the renewable share of total power production in the country.
To implement the Programme the EBRD will require consultancy support for two components:
Component 1: Support legislative, regulatory framework for bioenergy value chains (estimate: USD 500,000). The Policy Dialogue Consultant will focus on providing support to the Government of Ukraine by:
- Developing an action plan for bioenergy capacity to reach targets set in the National Energy Strategy of Ukraine.
- Developing incentives for bioenergy technology transfer and bioenergy value chain development.
- Developing biomass certification schemes to enable biomass exchange operation.
Component 2: Programme Manager (consultancy position) to be based in Kiev RO for four years (estimate: USD 220,000) to:
- Support the implementation of Sustainable Bioenergy Value Chain Innovations Program in Ukraine;
- Support policy dialogue with local authorities to improve the investment climate and strengthen the EBRD impact in the area of bioenergy value chain;
- Support development and implementation of the knowledge management and capacity building activities to strengthen the capacity of the local market to absorb and expand implementation of bioenergy value chain innovations;
- Coordinate Donor visibility activity, including marketing plans, publications, Donors visibility events, etc;
- Contribute to reporting to Donors, including preparation and presentation of required reports to Donors.
Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.
