eSwatini Energy Regulator Invites Prospective 40MW Biomass Project Bidders to Workshop

  • In August 2020, the Eswatini Energy Regulatory Authority (ESERA), in consultation with the Minister of Natural Resources and Energy, launched the request for qualification process (RFQ) to shortlist suitably qualified applicants to participate in the request for proposals (RFP) process for the development of circa 40 MW of biomass projects.

ESERA is pleased to invite parties that are interested in the development of biomass projects in Eswatini (i.e. developers, biomass feedstock suppliers, lenders, contractors, etc.) to an online workshop on the RFQ to be held on 11 February 2021, from 10h00 – 12h00.

The key objectives of the workshop are:

  • To allow ESERA to present the RFQ documentation and to highlight key issues relating to the RFQ;
  • To provide an opportunity to engage with ESERA on the RFQ by raising oral questions and receiving indicative oral responses (where possible)
  • To allow participants to raise key areas of concern that they may be facing in responding to the RFQ

ESERA requests that parties wishing to attend the workshop should kindly inform ESERA by 05 February 2021 by sending an email to the ESERA Consumer and Stakeholder Management Manager on: nkambules@esera.org.sz

The Zoom link to be used for the workshop is:

Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
