To engage a consulting firm to conceptualise structure and design for setting up Biomass exchange in India.

The Indo-German Energy Programme (IGEN Access - II) is a bilateral cooperation project carried out by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. IGEN Access - II aims to improve the energy supply in rural areas of selected federal states. The programme is being implemented over a period of three years (April 2019 – March 2022). BMZ has commissioned GIZ with the implementation of the project. GIZ is a federal enterprise based in Eschborn and Bonn, Germany.

IGEN Access-II intends to conduct a detailed study/analysis on the feasibility of biomass exchange (marketplace where different types of biomass for various consumers can be traded). This platform will eliminate the need for projects that are located with a single biomass feedstock, where the disruptions in feedstock availability due to poor yield or contractual disputes, feedstock quality (calorific value, moisture content, ash content, etc.), etc. affect the overall operations/project. Such a platform intends to provide incentives for investment on the demand side in larger, location independent and more economically viable biomass-based projects and on the supply side for processed & standardized biomass feedstock products. Development of projects to collect and process biomass has also proven to generate additional employment opportunities in rural areas. The assignment needs to be completed in 4 (four) months.
