TENDER NOTICE
FOR
ENGAGING A FIRM OF CONSULTANTS TO ASCERTAIN LEARNINGS FROM STATE SOLAR WATER PUMP SCHEMES, FOCUSING INSTALLED ASSET CONDITION AND IMPLEMENTATION DESIGNS

The Promotion of Solar Water Pumps component of the Indo-German Energy Programme (PSWP-IGEN) is a bilateral technical co-operation measure between the Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ), Germany and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India. BMZ has commissioned the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) with the implementation of the IGEN-PSWP module which aims at promoting sustainable use of solar water pumps in view of the Water-Energy-Food nexus. The module is being implemented pan-India with a focus on Assam, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal.

In India, several central and state government schemes/programmes have been put in place for solar water promotion, which have enabled their installed base to grow substantially. However, states have had varying success owing to differences in scheme designs and implementation practices. Also, there is limited clarity on the operational condition and impact of these pumps due to inadequate monitoring.

Given this, IGEN-PSWP seeks services of a specialized firm to identify of factors crucial for efficient operations of installed solar water pumps and for ensuring efficacy of state-level schemes for SWP promotion. This would entail (1) survey of 935 SWPs installed during 2015-16 in four states – Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Odisha (or Jharkhand), to understand operational condition, experience and challenges; and (2) review and analysis of state specific schemes for SWP promotion in six states – Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Odisha and Jharkhand, to identifying best practices across crucial scheme parameters and implementation processes.

The bidding firm will have to submit the proposal in digital format / electronically.

Please refer to the bidding conditions and follow the instructions carefully.
