Call for Grid Impact Analysis and Assessment for Increased Penetration of Renewable Energy into the Jamaica Electricity Grid.

Deadline: April 12, 2012

The Government of Jamaica (GoJ) has received financing from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) towards the cost of the Energy Security and Efficiency Enhancement Project (ESEEP). This project is being implemented by the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining (STEM), the executing agency in collaboration with several other state implementing partners. The GoJ intends to apply part of the proceeds toward payments under the contract for a suitable qualified firm to have an independent assessment of what the impact on the grid would be if the Renewable Energy (RE) projects under considerations are developed.

Scope of Works:
The scope of the works shall include but is not limited to:
a) Conducting a comprehensive all-island grid assessment of the ability of the electrical power system and, the transmission and distribution network (“the grid”) on the island of Jamaica to absorb the proposed electricity produced from Renewable Energy (RE) sources;
b) Modelling of the following RE technologies:
i. Waste to Energy
ii. Biomass / bagasse cogeneration
iii. Wind ;
iv. Solar PV – distributed and large scale; and
v. Hydro
c) Identify and propose solutions to dispatch and network issues and propose least cost measures to address identified constraints; and
d) Ranking with supporting evidence for Jamaica’s specific case, available least cost renewable energy portfolio over a range of likely cost scenarios for fuel, carbon, renewable technologies, and network reinforcement.

This assignment is expected to require 120 person/days of effort from the consulting firm.
