AdvertisementAdvert

1.0    INTRODUCTION

The Nigerian Energy Support Programme (NESP) is a technical assistance programme co-funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing (FMPWH).

During the first phase of NESP (May, 2013 to December the collaboration with the FMPWH led to the development of the Building Energy Efficiency Guideline (BEEG) in 2016 and the Building Energy Efficiency Code (BEEC) in 2017. NESP, in the second phase (January, 2018 to March, 2012) aims to further enable and foster investments in the domestic markets for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Nigeria and improve access to electricity for disadvantaged, mostly rural, communities, also in conflict affected areas. 

The obvious financial benefits of saving energy and lowering energy costs in buildings are widely recognized and commonly a primary driver for performing energy efficiency upgrades. Many corporations are now actively investing money back into their buildings because they realize the true business opportunity that exists with saving energy. However, to influence the broad investment choices of investors and financial institutions towards the financial gains of RE and EE investments and encourage them to expand their investment base to include such projects, it is important to integrate the works of both RE/EE and finance. 

Both the energy efficiency and the finance sectors could collaborate strategically on piloting technically feasible and cost-effective energy efficiency measures in financial institutions. Primarily, this provides a platform for financial institutions. Primarily, this provides a platform for financial institutions to gain hands-on experience in energy audits, energy management, energy efficient technologies, etc., as they would have the required knowledge and financial incentive to implement the recommended energy efficiency measures. In addition, the implementing financial institutions gain a training platform on de-risking and mainstreaming energy efficiency sector financing in Nigeria. 

At the end, it is expected that the financial institutions would have developed the capacity to directly translate building energy efficiency into financial business models to support the upscaling of energy audits and the use of energy efficiency recommendations in different types of buildings (such as hotels and hospitals). 

This forms the basis for the request for proposals for existing financial institutions in Nigeria to partner with NESP on the implementation of energy audits. 

2.0 SCOPE OF WORK

The scope of work under this request for proposal includes:

  1. Selection of existing financial institutions based on the eligibility requirements in section 3.0 (i-xii) below.
  2. Capacity building/training for the management and facility managers of the institution on energy efficiency in buildings.
  3. Technician assistance for implementing energy audits in the selected financial institutions with NESP’s trained and certified energy auditors from the Nigerian building sector, as part of developing local capacity in the Nigerian energy efficiency sector.
  4. The energy audits will recommend low-cost, medium-cost and high-cost measures in terms of investment cost.
  5. Promotion of buildings that have conducted the energy audits and implemented the energy efficiency recommendations as model energy efficient buildings in Nigeria
  6. Matchmaking the financial institutions with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for the purchase of the recommended energy efficient equipment. 

Please note that there is no investment grant for implementing energy efficiency measures. 

Interested financial institutions can apply to have energy audits conducted in their buildings as per the following eligibility requirements:
