The SPV was established for the sole purpose of constructing and operating a cascade of three hydroelectric power plants (HPPs) on the Adjaristskali River in the Adjara region of southwestern Georgia.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) (collectively, the Lenders) have each signed financing agreements with the Company for the first phase of the overall scheme the 181 MW Shuakhevi HPP (the Project).

The Project involves the construction and operation of a 181 MW hydropower scheme, consisting of two HPPs: the 175 MW Shuakhevi HPP which comprises two dams (39 and 22 metres high, respectively) with reservoirs on the Adjaristskali and Skhalta Rivers and one five-metre weir on the Chirukhistskali River.

The Project has been categorised as A under the Lenders' respective Environmental and Social Policies and, as such, an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) was developed and can be found here: http://www.ebrd.com/work-with-us/projects/esia/shuakhevi-hpp.html.

An Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) was agreed between the Company and the Lenders and has subsequently been updated following the completion of construction to focus on operational activities. In order to obtain a copy of the draft final Operations ESAP, interested firms are required to complete a Confidentiality Agreement (available to download here) and submit it to the Bank's Contact Person as per details listed below.

The Project construction has now been completed, commissioning activities are underway and operations are expected to commence in June/July 2017.

Georgia: Assistance with the Drafting of the First National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (Phase I)

 | Published November 17, 2014  -  Deadline December 8, 2014
cpvs

Georgia: Assistance with the Drafting of the First National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (Phase I) Background: Georgia does not have significant oil and gas reserves and until recently it imported almost two-thirds of its primary energy from external sources. Georgia's heavy energy dependence on energy imports and the need to strengthen national energy security are key energy challenges for the country. Energy efficiency ("EE") is likely to help address energy demand and energy security concerns. Efficient energy use reduces the amount of energy necessary to produce products and services, which effectively reduces energy demand. Georgia has a substantial potential for EE improvements largely because of the high levels of energy intensity of its economy in comparison with European standards. Despite government's awareness of the need for introducing EE standards and measures to improve the energy supply and security situation in the country, little has been done in the field. A dedicated policy approach is needed to promoting EE in the country, which would include an assessment of the EE potential and would set EE policy targets in various sectors. The first step would be the adoption of the country's first National Energy Efficiency Action Plan ("NEEAP"), which is a requirement both for European Union ("EU") Member States under the EU Energy Efficiency acquis and for the Energy Community Contracting Parties. The NEEAP is a strategic policy document that sets the country's overall and intermediate national indicative energy savings targets for the public and private sectors and proposes concrete measures and actions to meet these targets. As a long-standing partner to Georgia, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the "EBRD" or the "Bank") supports the country's sustainable energy development through investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency, which have contributed considerable CO2 savings, and through technical assistance (e.g., support to the Tbilisi municipality with the preparation of a Sustainable Energy Efficiency Action Plan ("SEEAP")). Assignment Description: To help Georgia ensure that it can successfully improve the EE standards and performance of the economy, the EBRD intends to retain a consultant (the "Consultant") to assist the Ministry with the preparation, drafting, adoption process and publishing of the country's first NEEAP (the "Assignment"). The NEEAP shall identify significant EE improvement measures and expected energy savings in all sectors (e.g., buildings, transport, power, products, processes and services) taking account of the country's potential and national EE targets, with a view to achieving high EE performance of the economy. The EBRD will retain a team of experts to work with the Ministry in fulfilling the Project's objectives. This Consultant will report to the Ministry and EBRD, and will keep the Energy Community Secretariat ("ECS") informed, ensuring that the work under this Project is conducted with due regard to ECS's guidance and is reflective of the practices of the ECS and other ECT Contracting Countries. The Consultant will carry out the following tasks: 1. In co-operation with the Ministry, the Consultant will carry out research and draft a NEEAP for Georgia and support the Government with its adoption and dissemination. The Consultant will assist the Ministry with the development of an EE policy concept as requested. The NEEAP shall be drafted in accordance with the structure and content provided in the NEEAP template prepared by the ECS to assist the Contracting Parties in drafting their first action plans, and should be acceptable on submission to the ECS as fully compliant with these requirements. To achieve this, the Consultant shall ensure that the requirements specified in the relevant EU Directive are incorporated in the NEEAP in a logical and integrated manner. 2. In addition, the NEEAP should cover significant EE improvement measures and expected/achieved energy savings, including those in the supply, transmission and distribution of energy and its end-uses. The minimum requirements for the harmonised template of a NEEAP, which will be fulfilled by the NEEAP drafted by the Consultant, are summarised in the relevant EU Directive. The document will also provide a timeline for the adoption and/or implementation of the different measures, clearly identifying a roadmap for the actions included in the NEEAP. 3. In addition to these, the NEEAP will contain (nonexclusively) the analysis, conclusions and recommendations arising from the tasks set out below: a. Background Assessment and Statistical Analysis, including recommendation for significant EE improvement measures and expected/ achieved energy savings in each main economic sector and how these can contribute towards Georgia's achieving its national energy targets etc; b. Analysis and Target Development, including calculating sector-level EE targets for Georgia and agree these with the government and an implementation plan; c. Policy Proposals, including recommendation for specific policy and regulatory measures, measures to support the widespread application of cost-effective technological innovations and measures to support the successful development and adoption of an EE incentive mechanism for utilities; d. NEEAP Implementation Pathway, including proposing: a Monitoring, Reporting and Verification system, a multi-year communications plan to increase public awareness nationwide, recommendation for specific legislative and regulatory changes etc; e. Support to the Client during the intra-government process. Status of Selection Process: Interested firms or groups of firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest. Assignment Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in Q1 2015 and has an estimated overall duration of 8 months and might be extended subject to the performance of the consultant, the need of the Bank and the availability of funding. Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 275,000; exclusive of VAT. The consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the Bank's special status as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purhcased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense. Funding Source: It is anticipated that the contract will be financed through the EBRD's donor funded Technical Cooperation Funds Programme. Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions. Consultant Profile: Corporate services are required. The Consultant will be a firm or a group of firms with extensive previous project experience in energy efficiency in all sectors (e.g., buildings, transport, power, products, processes and services) and management of large advisory projects working with public administrations with successful track record.

International policy and legal drafting and advisory expert with preferably 15 years professional experience in working with countries from the region in harmonising their legislation with the EU EE acquis; b. International economic and financial expert with preferably 10 years in working with countries from the region on improving their energy and energy efficiency sector performance, including in-depth knowledge of EU BREFs and EU policy, and experience in energy policy development and energy efficiency economics; c. International industrial engineer with preferably 10 years previous professional experience and in-depth knowledge of key sectors (including building and power sectors) of energy consumption and BAT energy measures, and industrial EE project management in these sectors; d. It would be an advantageous to include a social expert with preferably 7 years of previous professional experience in assessing and mitigating the effect of new policies and regulatory measures on affected groups and a short term expert (if not covered by one of the above mentioned experts) who has previous working experience in drafting at least one communication/awareness raising plan. e. Local policy, economic and/or regulatory expert with preferably 7 years in working on policy and regulation for energy and energy efficiency in Georgia and knowledge of the EU energy efficiency policy and legislation. For all experts strong spoken and written English is required. Consultant shall organise Georgian translation and editorial capacity to revise highly-technical documents with policy implications.

Capacity Building and Advocacy Support for the Georgian Competition Agency

 | Published April 27, 2016  -  Deadline May 24, 2016
cpvs

Project Description:
The Georgian Competition Authority (the 'Client') has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the 'EBRD' or the 'Bank') to provide technical assistance to strengthen its institutional capacity and support its advocacy function as a regulator (the 'Project').

Georgia introduced significant amendments to the law on 'Free Trade and Competition' in March 2014, based on which the Competition and State procurement agency was divided into two legal entities, and by the Government Resolution No 288 dated 14th April 2014 the new Competition Agency was established. This decision marked a turning point, as a formally independent competition agency was for the first time introduced in the country. The legislation introduced (competition law and relevant by-laws) is in line with the commitments of Georgia under the DCFTA (deep and comprehensive free trade area).

While the legislation is by now broadly aligned with the EU model, the Client currently lacks adequate capacity to enforce it. The staff, currently composed of 39 people (16 economists, 10 lawyers and 13 administrative/other staff), requires significant training in the areas of competition economics, quantitative techniques for the enforcement of competition law, and procedural aspects of competition law enforcement.

At the same time, the Client needs to raise its profile and ensure that its role and mandate is well understood by the business community, by the government and by public opinion more generally.

Assignment Description:
The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the 'Consultant') to design, implement and deliver a capacity building programme and advocacy support activities with the Client (the 'Assignment'). The contracting entity shall be the Bank.

The expected outcome of the Assignment is that the Georgian Competition Agency's capacity as a competition review body is enhanced and market awareness about its role is increased.

The selected Consultant will be required to deliver a capacity building programme composed of the following three components:

(i) The delivery of a formal, classroom-based training programme combining a review of main economic and legal concepts in competition law enforcement with assessment of relevant EU case law. The training will be focused at building the necessary skills and knowledge necessary for officials and case handlers to perform antitrust and merger investigations in line with best international practice.

A small number of participants from sector regulators in Georgia (e.g. energy and telecom regulators) should be envisaged, in light of their significant involvement in competition matters;

(ii) Exposure to best practice in other jurisdictions through the attendance by selected officials to (i) one study-tour at an EU competition authority and (ii) international seminars and events with the participation of recognized international academics and practitioners in the competition field.

The objective of the study tour will be to contribute to the officials' capacity building through direct exposure to the operations of competition authorities in more advanced selected jurisdictions; while the attendance to relevant international conferences/events will also provide them with an opportunity to engage with international experts and practitioners and to network with officials from other competition authorities;

(iii) The realization of ad-hoc advocacy initiatives aimed at raising awareness about the Competition Agency's role in promoting competition and at building its advocacy role for the support of market oriented reforms.

Additional information on the scope of services required is available from the attached Terms of Reference ('ToR'): http://www.ebrd.com/documents/procurement/51279-tor.pdf

The Consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the special status of the Bank as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a Consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense.
