Request for EOI No.8463-Construction of Solar Mini-Grids

Prequalification of Contractors for the Construction of Solar Mini-Grids in Afghanistan (EOI/UNDP/AFG/2021/0000008442) Date: 03 February 2021 UNDP invites interested suppliers/contractors to apply to the following Request for Expression of Interest (EOI): 1) Summary of EOI Proposal The Green Climate Fund (GCF) approved the UNDP project titled “Afghanistan Rural Energy Market Transformation Initiative – Strengthening Resilience of Livelihoods Through Sustainable Energy Access”. The objective of the project is to kick-start rural renewable energy market transformation in Afghanistan and create the conditions for upscaling and long-term sustainability, through a combination of: (1) policy and regulatory design, facilitating public and private sector financing; (2) capacity building and awareness raising of the public and private sectors and end-users; and (3) investment in the set-up of 3 greenfield solar mini-grids and creation of an “upscaling platform” to facilitate additional solar mini-grid investments. The upscaling platform will consist of: (i) a knowledge platform, including a solar mini-grid practical development manual, online evidence and data sharing tools, and full technical studies for 5 additional mini-grids; (ii) development and mainstreaming of green procurement policies for solar mini-grids; and (iii) development and mainstreaming of environmental and social governance (ESG) policies for solar mini-grids. Ultimately, the project aims to contribute, in a phased approach, to a large volume of solar mini-grid development in Afghanistan and – with the long-term improvement in macroeconomic and security conditions – the eventual involvement of private investment for mini-grid development beyond operation and maintenance only. This approach will create the basis for mainstreaming renewable energy mini-grid solutions and continued reduced GHG emission as compared to the alternative, diesel-generated power. The project will result in 173,179 tCO2eq reduction from the implementation of 3 solar mini-grids. The implementation of three proof-of-concept solar mini-grid pilots will thereby address enhanced resilience to climate change impact for 49,000 beneficiaries, of whom 23,500 are women as a result of the additional services that will become available with Tier 3 level of energy access. UNDP Afghanistan invites potential and experienced construction firms/companies to submit Prequalification applications for providing civil works services for a period of next two years (2021-2022) as and when required by UNDP. Upon completion of the evaluation of the Prequalification, UNDP will include the selected firms/companies in the list of Prequalified vendors. Below list provides the details about the nature and types of const
