Invitation for Expression of Interest(EOI)
Expression of Interest for the supply of Automated and/or Semi-automated Briquette production Machinery
Objective of the Call
The GIZ Energy Portfolio Ethiopia Office Under this Call is sourcing expressions of interest from commercial suppliers and importers of automated and semi-automated machines to be used in the production of briquettes by selected operators. The objective is to incentivize the private sector actors looking to venture into alternative fuels and mass briquette production in their respective regions to transition to alternative biomass fuels that are cleaner than the currently used conventional cooking practices.
The call for expressions of interest aims to support these target groups to accelerate the commercialization & scale-up of regional innovative approaches to engage in clean cooking in Ethiopia.
Based on the current priorities of the GIZ Energy Portfolio Ethiopia, the following are considerations made for the envisioned support:
- Boost local capacities to initiate innovative briquette production using diverse raw materials available locally that will support the market development for the biomass value chain at regional level.
- Rapid deployment of new briquetting technologies and solutions to respond to the growing demand for alternative briquette fuels in the regions.
- Improve the overall health of targeted groups i.e. end users of the briquette technologies who currently use charcoal, firewood and other unsustainable and unclean cooking approaches that create air pollution and ultimately cause respiratory problems in the communities targeted.
- Reduce carbon emissions in the regions that negatively contribute to climate change in the regions and enable end-users to recognize the benefits of clean-cooking solutions for which sustainable technologies are available and in demand.
The GIZ Energy Portfolio Ethiopia therefore invites Expression of Interest from eligible firms to undertake the assignment above.
