I. Goal: “reduce GHG emissions from the power sector, the objective is to promote and facilitate the commercialization of the renewable energy (RE) markets through the removal of barriers to increase investments in RE based power generation project.”
II. Outcome indicators: “Direct emissions reductions will be 205,181 tonnes of CO2eq hand. 20,000 sitio-based households will have access to RE sources.
III. Components and Expected outcomes
DREAMS have 4 components:
a. RE Policy and Planning
enforcement of a supportive policy and regulatory environment = increase in RE investments
b. Institutional strengthening for RE mainstreaming
strengthened institutional capacity= increase in RE project approvals
c. Capitalized RE market development
increased number of operational RE projects = increase in confidence of RE developers on viability of RE
d. RE commercialization
capitalized RE markets = increase in RE based power capacity
IV. Stakeholders for the project.
The project is being implemented by the Department of Energy (DOE). DOE assumes over-all responsibility for the achievement of project results. The Project is co-financed with funding from the GEF. UNDP acts as the GEF Executing Agency. All components of the Project is being implemented by the Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB).
A Project Support Group (PSG) composed of technical staff/specialist from the other Bureaus and divisions of DOE has been formed to provide technical advice in the implementation of the activities including monitoring and evaluation. A Project Steering Committee has been established to serve as a policy and decision-making body for the project implementation. The members of the PSC are DOE, DILG, DENR, NEDA, TRANSCO, NGCP, NPC, PEMC, UNDP, and representative from the local governments of Iloilo and Palawan.
A Project Management Unit (PMU) is based at the DOE Compound. The PMU is headed by a National Project Director (NPD) who is also the Director of the REMB. A Project Manager and support staff oversees the day to day operations of the DREAMS Project Management Office. The PMO is located at the office of the DOE in Taguig, Metro Manila.
The work of the IC will be supervised by the DREAMS Project Manager. The PMU will facilitate linkage to the potential key informants within and outside of DOE. The Contractor will also coordinate with the Hydropower Ocean Energy Management Division of the REMB. However, the gathering and consolidation of data for the study, within or outside of DOE, shall be the responsibility of the IC.
Any changes in the Inception Plan requires prior approval of the National Project Director.
Duration of the Work
The expected duration of work is 100 days spread over 6 months. The indicative duration is from 04 November 2019 - 03 May 2020.
The IC will be based in Manila. IC may be provided a small working space during visits or prolonged consultation subject to availability of space only, if and only when the IC is called for a meeting and/or a consultation.
Scope of Price Proposal and Schedule of Payments
The Consultant is being requested to submit an all-inclusive cost for the professional fee, communications, insurance, travel expenses (air ticket and other related travel costs), etc. that could possibly be incurred by the Contractor are already factored into the final amounts submitted in the proposal. However, the cost of meetings and workshops to be organized by the DREAMS PMU will be covered separately by the PMU.
Sites to be visited are the provinces of Iloilo, Palawan and Davao/Bukidnon and Albay. The actual number of days for each visit will depend on your proposed assessment methodology. Your methodology will be submitted together with the Financial Proposal and updated CV.
