Project Description
The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will increase rural clean energy supply in the greater Beijing Tianjin Hebei (BTH) region by assessing the current energy consumption and structure, and its impacts on air quality The TA will focus on Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shandong, and Henan, municipalities and provinces that have substantial biomass, solar, wind, and geothermal resource potential. The TA will help these local governments develop policy measures to optimize rural energy supply and improve air quality through the following knowledge building activities: (i) Conducting a survey to identify the status and structure of rural energy consumption. (ii) Assessing impacts of rural energy consumption on air quality. (iii) Proposing clean energy supply structures in pilot municipalities. And (iv) Assessing the market potential of clean energy uptake and development of a clean energy strategy. Consultants will be engaged in accordance with ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated Project Administration Instructions. Consultants will be engaged to prepare the TA, using the individual selection method and output-based partial lump-sum contracts. In addition, a firm will be engaged using quality- and cost-based selection method and output-based, partial lump-sum contract for the complementary survey to prepare reports.
