Project Description

The Government of Uzbekistan is aiming to generate approximately 21% of all its energy needs from renewable energy sources by 2031. To achieve this ambitious target, the Government adopted an Action Program on Renewable Energy Development for 2017-2021 in May 2017, setting out a strategy to promote private sector investment in the renewable energy sector and further announced plans for installing 300 MW of solar generation capacity and generating more than 1 trillion kWh of electricity from several wind farms. In this context, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development was tasked by the Government of Uzbekistan with providing support towards the development of the first wind auction for the country.

The key objectives of this assignment are to:

1) Review existing materials on potential project sites and wind measurement studies in Uzbekistan and advise on any gaps that need to be addressed for selecting a site that will be subject to a wind power tender.
2) Following a review of existing materials developed by the International Financial Corporation (IFC) for a solar PV tender in Uzbekistan, develop a detailed design for a competitive bidding process for a wind power tender, accounting for current arrangements, renewable energy targets and market context.
3) Prepare, up to the final version, all the tender related documentation required for the deployment of a competitive procurement scheme for selected wind projects.
4) Provide detailed technical, financial and legal assistance to the relevant Authorities for the implementation of the competitive procurement scheme.
5) Advise on the design of a competitive procurement scheme for renewable energy that Authorities should use in the future.

Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.
