Project Description

According to bank provided information, this projectconsists of a comprehensive technical assistance package that will help to create an enabling environment for private sector RE investments in Lebanon, as well as to provide the necessary support to the relevant institutions for the successful implementation of RE auctions and the management of the resulting increased levels of intermittent generation in the electricity system. The technical assistance involves supporting the authorities on implementing tenders for renewable energy investments, as well as strengthening the underpinning institutional and overall regulatory and legal framework. This component also includes support to the relevant institutions (including, but not necessarily limited to, the auctioneer) on practical aspects of implementing and administering RE tenders up to financial close, such as responding to bidders’ requests for clarifications, evaluating bids, negotiating with the winning bidders, etc.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD

The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent. You can contact the PCM at pcm@ebrd.com or you can submit a complaint online using an online form, http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en. You can learn more about the PCM and how to file a complaint at http://www.ebrd.com/work-with-us/project-finance/project-complaint-mechanism.html.
