- GreenCo Power Services Limited (GreenCo), a subsidiary of Africa GreenCo Group, invites power developers (Respondents) to participate in a Request For Qualifications in respect of a 10-40MWAC solar PV IPP plant to supply energy to GreenCo under a long-term PPA (Pilot Project).
- The qualification stage of the procurement process will be followed by a request for proposals from qualified Respondents as per the timelines laid out in the RFQ.
- The deadline for submitting requests for qualification is 23:59 on Sunday 21st March 2021.
The Pilot Project will not only add much needed renewable energy supply in Zambia but importantly also aid in the implementation of the wider Government of Zambia (GRZ) objectives for the development of the Zambian Energy Supply Industry (ESI). The Pilot Project will generate up to 80GWh of power per year, which will be allocated to a mix of large consumers and utilities in Zambia, and regional competitive markets.
The Pilot Project is likely to be the first project in Zambia to take advantage of the new open access regime introduced by GRZ under the Electricity Act 2019 and the Energy Regulation Act 2019 (New Legislation). The Pilot Project will provide a practical focus for GreenCo and GRZ stakeholders to work together for the refinement and implementation of the New Legislation, including clarifying the allocation of responsibilities and wheeling/ balancing/ system operations costs among market participants.
