Home 5 News 5 RFP: Energy service providers for new alternative service delivery project in Mpumalanga

21 November 2023

Please see the documents below to submit your bid by 19 January 2024. 

Context: GreenCape’s Alternative Service Delivery Unit (ASDU) is a community-led, data-driven independent offgrid service delivery unit that oversees the design, facilitation and implementation of tailored service delivery models that are financially sustainable, technically sound and socially inclusive. The ASDU is currently active on a site called Nomzamo Agricultural Village in Mpumalanga. For this community, we have completed an in-depth enumeration exercise and engaged in we-design sessions to build our understanding of their community and their priorities, and to help us design their energy service delivery needs.

Project aim: In partnership with the Royal Danish Embassy in South Africa and the New Zealand High Commission of South Africa, the Alternative Service Delivery Unit is supporting the community of Nomzamo Agricultural Village in meeting their energy needs. In order to build a strong social foundation for an alternative energy intervention, the implementing team have over the last year undertaken extensive social mobilisation, enumeration and participatory co-design exercises to understand the community’s profile and priorities; and build community buy-in and readiness. GreenCape is looking for technical partner/s to provide sustainable off-grid energy service/s that meet the energy needs of~300 homes and contribute to create economic and social development in the wider community.
