Clarifications to the RFP
Overview :

Overview :

 

Background:

There is need to increase access to energy in Uganda. Up to 95 % of population use traditional solid fuels for heating, lighting and cooking, which has encouraged massive environmental harm thus must be reduced through using alternative means like solar energy and bio gas respectively at relatively low expenses.

A small percentage (22%) of the Uganda’s population is connected to power grid and the demand for electricity also exceeds supply significantly, thus there is need for the community to embrace solar energy, which is less costly and can be afforded by anyone regardless of the income.

Solar training program is as one way of tackling the challenges facing the Solar sub sector like;

  1. High rate of system failure,
  2. Limited technical capacity to trouble shoot and maintain systems, and
  3. Design of energy systems in the country.

It is against this background that the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development with support from the UNDP supported Inclusive Green Growth Programme is seeking a consultant to conduct capacity building of at least 30 solar PV systems traders, technicians and vocational instructors, from Kitgum and Lamwo districts.
