|Overview : |
The South African Wind Energy Project Phase 2 (SAWEP 2) is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) with the Department of Energy (DoE) as the Executing Entity/Implementing Partner, and supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) South Africa Country Office. The project objective is to overcome barriers to the attainment of South Africa’s 2010 Integrated Resource Plan target of 3,320 MW of wind power generation online by 2018/19. In order to achieve this, the project focusses on four components: Component 1: Monitoring and Evaluation of the implementation of local content requirements, Component 2: Resource-mapping and wind corridor development support for policy-makers, Component 3: Support for the development of small-scale wind sector and Component 4: Training and human capital development for the wind energy sector. Each component is associated with specific outputs and a set of activities.
This Terms of Reference (TOR) relates to the SAWEP 2 Component 3: Support for the development of small-scale wind sector and the gap that was identified between small scale wind turbines (WTs) typical up to 100kW and the REIPPPP typical 2 MW WTs and higher.
In this regard, services of a consultant are required, but not limited, to focus on the following areas of assessment by making use of relevant documentation and conducting a desktop study. This study is to be supported through consultation with stakeholders and the recommendations should be based on strategic analysis (e.g. swot-, gap-, macro-economic, value chain analysis) of the findings
