Reference: 7000004032
Beneficiary country(ies): Multiple destinations (see 'Countries' tab below)
Published on: 04-Feb-2020
Deadline on: 17-Feb-2020 17:00 (GMT 1.00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris


Impact evaluation on the ECOWAS Policies for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency and the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE), covering the period from 2010 to 2020.

The independent (policy) impact evaluation has the following objectives:

  • To analyse whether the mid-term targets of the EREP/EEEP instrument were achieved by 2020, and to which extent it has caused change of national policies and behaviour, and generated wider socio-economic benefits;
  • To analyse whether ECREEE has influenced the uptake of RE&EE in the ECOWAS region, and to which extent the interventions have caused change of behaviour and generated wider socio-economic benefits;
  • To assess whether the EREP/EEEP and ECREEE instruments have been cost-efficient and are still relevant to achieve the established 2030 RE&EE targets; to review whether the said targets are still achievable;
  • To provide recommendations for readjustment of the instruments;
  • To provide lessons learned for other centres under the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres (GN-SEC)[1]

The assignment will result in the development of two reports, which will be presented to the ECOWAS Ministers of Energy for consideration. The reports will establish an important baseline for the further implementation of the EREP/EEEP and an important point of orientation for future ECREEE activities. They will also help to improve the monitoring and evaluation framework of ECREEE. For the data collection and analysis, the consulting team will receive significant support by the ECREEE/ECOWREX[2] team. There is an extensive need to analyse ECOWREX data and internal ECREEE documentation generated over the past ten years.

Dear Madam/Sir, please find below additional clarifications: Clarification No. 4 - Central point of contact within ECREE for day-to-day communication and coordination: The assignment will be supervised by UNIDO Project Manager and the ECREEE Executive Director. A technical focal point will be appointed by ECREEE. Soon ECREEE will launch a call for interns which will assist the data collection exercise. Clarification No. 5 - Authority to sign off on submitted deliverables: The ultimate authority lies with UNIDO. However, UNIDO will consult with ECREEE management on the acceptance beforehand. Clarification No. 6 - Anticipated internal review and commenting process in order to finalise deliverables: The parties will agree on that in the inception phase (Inception Report). Clarification No. 7 - Anticipated length of the reports: Bidders are free to propose a length for the report. Priority will be given to the quality of the analysis rather than the length of the report (it might include many annexes).

Dear Madam/Sir, please find below a number of clarifications for your kind consideration: Clarification No 1 - Expected experts for this assignment: There is no concrete number. The team must have a sound combination of sustainable energy, evaluation and ECOWAS experience. The estimated working days of the consultants are included in the TOR. The consultants will be assisted by ECREEE staff and interns with regard to the gathering and analysis of data. Clarification No. 2 - On-site travel in addition to the 2 mentioned in the ToR: Bidders are free to propose an effective methodology. As indicated in the TOR the employment of local staff is an added value. Clarification No. 3 - How many on-site days are expected from the team leader?: Bidders are free to propose an effective methodology.
