Malawi is seeking consultants for a mini-grid data tracking platform 

  • The government of Malawi is seeking consultants for the development and implementation of a mini-grid data tracking platform.  
  • The chosen firm must develop and deploy a cloud-based, secure software platform to collect, visualise, analyse and disseminate project progress in easy to use accessible interfaces. 

Government of Malawi (GoM) has prioritized the development of the energy sector as an enabler to the achievement of Malawi 2063 and to accelerate access to reliable energy for socio-economic development of the country. To help the GoM to achieve the access target, the World Bank has provided financing for the implementation of the Malawi Electricity Access Project (MEAP) with the objective to increase access to electricity from 18% to 30% of the population in Malawi.

MEAP is implemented by both the Ministry of Energy (MoE) and ESCOM. The MoE is specifically responsible of establishing and operating an Off-Grid Market Development Fund (OGMDF) or the Ngwee Ngwee Fund, which is to drive the urgent need to provide energy access and to scale up the off-grid market.

Good luck,
