Turkey: Residential Energy Efficiency Financing Facility (TuREEFF) Consultancy Support - Verification Consultant

 | Published October 14, 2014  -  Deadline November 10, 2014
cpvs

Turkey: Residential Energy Efficiency Financing Facility (TuREEFF) Consultancy Support - Verification Consultant Assignment Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) is developing the Turkish Residential Energy Efficiency Financing Facility (TuREEFF). The TuREEFF will consist of credit lines of up to USD 350 million to be provided to Participating Financial Intermediaries (PFIs) for on-lending to private sector borrowers for implementing energy efficiency measures within households and residential buildings. The purpose of the Facility is to demonstrate the benefits of energy conservation and promote the expansion of renewable energy and energy efficiency investments at the residential level in Turkey using the financial intermediation model already being used by EBRD in other countries. The residential sector (accounting for 29% of the country�s final energy consumption) has significant energy savings potential but is characterised by i) high market fragmentation; ii) low market awareness of the benefits of energy efficiency among stakeholders; iii) limited local implementation capacity; iv) lack of available financing mechanisms; and v) complex and incomplete regulatory framework. The proposed Facility will aim at addressing these five points simultaneously by setting enhanced standards and catalysing a market transformation via the proven successful Sustainable Energy Finance Facility (SEFF) approach. TuREEFF is intended to become a financing vehicle supporting the practical implementation of the new building energy efficiency legislation and transposing of the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (recast) in Turkey. TuREEFF is expected to operate in conjunction with the Government of Turkey (GoT) Urban Transformation Plan though providing finance for sustainable energy measures to be implemented alongside the physical rehabilitation or reconstruction of residential buildings. The Facility will provide financing for the following categories of eligible Sub-loans: 1) Implementation of advanced sustainable energy measures to the level of EU best practice (exceeding Turkish national requirements) in individual housing properties. At the household level, there will be two types of investments: a) Structural improvements - The sub-projects encompass eligible measures implemented in individual dwellings (e.g. family houses and individual apartments) based on a List of Eligible Material and Equipment (LEME) - a predefined list of eligible equipment, which will guarantee the achievement of the minimum level of energy savings. b) Household equipment� includes high-efficiency equipment related to household heating (including fuel switching), cooling, electrical appliances with consumption of energy (cookers, fridges, freezers, washing machines etc. all of which will only be financed if they reach at least the Class A+ of the EU Appliance Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme , if they are covered by the scheme) and household sustainable energy production (renewable energy installations such as solar water heaters, micro CHP); any investment under this category must prove significant impact in terms of energy and/or carbon savings (at least 20% above current levels) 2) Financing and structuring energy efficiency components, compliant with the EU best practices in buildings. a) Rehabilitation/reconstruction of existing residential buildings - The sub-projects encompass complex refurbishment/upgrade in multi-family apartment buildings or their demolishing and replacement by a new one. These sub-projects address whole-building improvements. b) Construction of new residential buildings - The sub-projects aim on promotion of purchase of apartments in newly built residential building with Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) class B or A. The Facility will be supported by a comprehensive technical assistance programme (TC). The TC funds will be used for two consultancy assignments: Project Consultant (PC) and Verification Consultant (VC). The Project Consultant (or the PC), which has already been engaged, will assist with the design, launch and successful operation of the Facility, be responsible for the marketing of the Facility, define technical eligibility criteria, design procedures, appraise sub-projects against a set of criteria, monitor implementation of financed sub-projects and verify implementation of some sub-projects. The Verification Consultant (or the VC), subject to this call for Expressions of Interest, will assess all newly built housing and whole-building refurbishments to ensure that the implemented investments meet the expectations of the PFIs, Sub-borrowers, and the Project Consultant, and meet the necessary regulatory requirements. There will be two different approaches to the selection, preparation, processing and verification of the investment projects following the following 3 categories of potential sub-projects: 1) Small (LEME) investments : based on the LEME/LESI approach. The List of Eligible Materials and Equipment (LEME) and the List of Eligible Suppliers and Installers (LESI) will be prepared by the Project Consultant and applied by Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) with support provided by the PC as required. The PC will do 100% desk verification and 10% site verification on certain Sub-projects. 2) Assisted Investments : Sub-projects include eligibility measures and/or rehabilitation or reconstruction of buildings where the PC will perform a pre-screening and provide a technical report related to the Sub-project. Assisted Investment type Sub-projects are divided into three sub-categories: a) Partial Rehabilitation Assisted Investments include application of individual energy efficiency measure(s) such as thermal insulation and/or the renovation of central heating systems with simplified assessment provided by the PC. All used materials and equipment must be listed on LEME and implemented by companies on LESI. The VC will arrange 100% desk verification and 10% randomly selected Sub-project site verification. b) Full Rehabilitation Investments include comprehensive refurbishments for existing buildings where two or more energy efficiency measures are implemented together. The PC will provide technical assistance in sub-project assessment and an energy certificate after the sub-project completion. All completed sub-projects will be verified by the VC including site visit (only building level and not apartment level). c) Reconstruction Assisted Investments for residential buildings voluntarily demolished due to structural defects, low quality housing and low energy performance and/or due to official identification of the existing building as risky under the Urban Transformation Plan (UTP) of the Government of Turkey. This includes investments in the demolition and reconstruction of the building. For this type of Sub-project, the new building should be certified as class B and higher in the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Construction SMEs through commercial loans, and individuals who want to purchase apartments in newly Built residential houses through mortgage loans, can be the beneficiary for this kind of Sub-loan. All completed sub-projects will be verified by the VC including site visit (only building level and not apartment level). 3) Mortgage Investments for new buildings with an energy performance certificate class B or higher. All completed sub-projects will be verified by the VC including site visit (only building level and not apartment level). The main tasks of the VC will be to: - Prepare a verification report (Completion Validation Review or CVR) on the implementation of Sub-project in the category B and C as specified above, including the relevant energy savings indicator and an assessment on how the recommendations in the Sustainable Energy Assessment Report (SEAR, prepared by the PC) or any other document (e.g. EPC design) have been fulfilled; - Provide EBRD with a monthly work plan outlining planned activities for the next month and a final report providing a summary of activities undertaken throughout the assignment; - Prepare and submit to the Bank other deliverables as may reasonably be requested; - Ensure that all reports and documentation has clear references to the support of the donors, the form of such references to be agreed with the EBRD. Assignment Duration: Anticipated start date is Q1 2015 with an estimated duration of 4 years. Assuming some whole building refurbishments will take several months to complete, the Verification Consultant may be required to continue working on the TuREEFF for a period of time after the end of the disbursement period of the PFIs in order to assess the completion of sub-projects which are financed at the end of the disbursement period. The contract may be extended subject to EBRD needs, excellent performance of the Consultant, extension of the Facility and availability of funding. Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 335,000; 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 by the European Union under Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) for the Transition Assistance and Institution Building Component in Turkey. Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions. However, the consulting firm that has been awarded the contract for the TuREEFF Project Consultant (PC) or their sub-contractors cannot be awarded the contract for the VC. Consultant Profile: Corporate services are required. The Consultant will be firm or a group of firms with a strong locally based support capacity as the bulk of the assignment will be conducted in the field. The Consultant should have relevant experience in all areas needed for the performance of the assignment as described above, including relevant sector and regional experience. The VC�s team will be composed of professionals with relevant technical/engineering background in order to ensure compliance with EU and/or Turkish legislation as relevant for the residential sector. Participation of local experts is essential. It expected that experts will be capable of and experienced in validating sub-projects against set criteria. The key expert positions are the following: 1. Project Manager with a) with extensive experience of project management, b) expertise in project implementation planning, including experience related to energy management, renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, d) experience of working in EBRD's countries of operation, including in Turkey will be an advantage. 2.

Project Description:

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) aims at developing a follow-on credit line of the Mid-size Sustainable Energy Financing Facility in Turkey (the Project or MidSEFF III). MidSEFF III will build on the achievements of previous MidSEFF phases by providing up to EUR 500 million of EBRD funds to Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) in Turkey for on-lending to mid-sized investments (EUR 5-50 million) in renewable energy (RE) and resource efficiency (ResE), contributing to a reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as Turkey’s dependence on imported energy supplies.

MidSEFF III is expected to operate in conjunction with the Government of Turkey (GoT) plans to increase energy generation from RE sources to meet growing demand for electricity and complement the GoT's National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) and its National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP), which is under development with the support of the EBRD. The NEEAP will include a wide range of sector based and horizontal ResE measures aimed at achieving Turkey's 2023 energy efficiency targets.

Assignment Description:

The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the Consultant) to support the successful implementation of the Project (the Assignment).

The expected outcome of the Assignment is for PFIs to be able to efficiently and effectively implement the Project by disbursing credit lines in accordance with the loan agreements and to further mainstream EU environmental and social (E&S) requirements and health and safety (H&S) standards within the PFIs' operations.

T
he selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:

  1. General Facility management

a) Establish and maintain an infrastructure to ensure Project coordination, monitoring and reporting throughout the assignment, including communication protocols with the PFIs to track the implementation of Sub-projects.

b) Be responsible for maintenance of the Facility website and ensuring donor visibility in publications and at events.

c) Bring to EBRD's attention any relevant policy issues that could be addressed in order to further enhance the outreach of the Facility and to support the development of financing eligible investments.

d) Ensure that potential Sub-projects meet the applicable requirements of EBRD's Environmental and Social Policy as well as EU E&S standards and H&S best practices.

  1. PFI-specific tasks

The PFI-specific tasks include the Consultant's activities that would be required when a PFI joins the Facility. PFI-specific tasks may include (but are not limited to):

a) Assisting the PFI to adapt the procedures, information and process workflows for implementation of the Facility.

b) Working closely with PFIs in applying EBRD policies and EU E&S and H&S standards and best practices.

c) Designing a dedicated training programme for 'new' PFIs dedicated to carbon market developments and implications for doing business in Turkey.

d) Organising at least one workshop per PFI covering the Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) regulation, as well as carbon market developments more broadly.

e) Assisting the PFIs to fulfil the EBRD Environmental and Social Policy requirements based on training materials to be provided by the EBRD.

f) Supporting the PFIs in analysing their client base and customising tailored lending products to address the implementation of eligible technologies and practices in the long-term ensuring compliance with EU E&S requirements and H&S standards.

  1. Sub-Project Assessment Tasks

a) The Consultant will assist PFIs in identifying eligible project opportunities and assessing the technical and economic feasibility of the identified Sub-projects, by performing a preliminary review against the eligibility criteria and identifying gaps – in particular gaps in E&S (including H&S) requirements - between those and EBRD's financing requirements.

b) For existing MidSEFF PFIs, the role of the PC in RE sub-projects will be limited to providing support to the PFI in assessing and identifying project risks and providing feedback to the Sub-project developer on the documents prepared, ensuring EBRD's Environmental and Social Policy requirements are incorporated into the Sub-project appraisal and that the EU environmental and H&S standards are being met.

c) For PFIs which are new to MidSEFF, the PC will focus on the transfer of skills and expertise necessary to identify and prepare technically and environmentally feasible RE and ResE projects, ensuring compliance with the EBRD E&S Policy as well as with EU E&S requirements and H&S standards. The PC will work towards the goal of transferring responsibility for the delivery of these documents to these new PFIs by the end of the Assignment.

d) For ResE Sub-projects, (whether with existing or new PFIs) the PC will prepare a Simplified or Full Assessment Report, including a carbon footprint analysis for industrial clients in compliance with existing MRV regulation. The PC may provide additional assistance to companies subject to the MRV regulation in the MRV compliance cycle. Such assistance may cover the preparation of a first verification report in compliance with the MRV regulation.

e) Provide procurement advice to Sub-borrowers regarding the planning and implementation of goods, works and services, in a manner consistent with sound procurement practices for private sector entities, and compliant with EBRD policies as relevant. The PC will track the eligibility of Sub-projects for the feed-in tariff (FiT) premium related to the use of local content and report on such Sub-projects actually receiving the FiT premium. All Sub-projects should be prepared in the context of alignment towards the relevant EU Directives. Waste-to-energy (WtE) and material efficiency Sub-projects should pay particular attention to the EU Waste Framework Directive and related EU legislation.

  1. Sub-Projects Monitoring

Sub-project monitoring for E&S compliance will be expanded in cooperation with PFIs under MidSEFF III to ensure that appraisal and monitoring practices are mainstreamed in the PFIs' operations for all similar sustainable energy Sub-projects, and that Sub-projects are implemented to the standard of their assessment documents.

National Consultant for the design of the UNDP Gender Equality Seal Certification Programme for the private sector in Turkey

UNDP Turkey CO - TURKEY | Published June 15, 2017  -  Deadline July 5, 2017
cpvs

Location: UN House Ankara (there will be need to travel to Istanbul)Type of Contract: Individual ContractPost Level: National ConsultantLanguages Required: English and TurkishDuration of the Contract: 3 July-31 December 2017 (up to 60 working days during contract validity) Terms of ReferenceNational Consultant for the design of the UNDP Gender Equality Seal Certification Programme for the private sector in Turkey 1 Background and ContextUNDP, the global development network of the United Nations system present in 166 countries and territories, is uniquely equipped to help developing countries build sustainable capacity to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In support of this, UNDP offers a wide range of solutions to global, regional and national development challenges through a comprehensive knowledge network, expert practitioners and focused strategic areas of support. The UNDP Gender Equality Seal Certification Programme for Public and Private Enterprises involves national governments, private sector companies and civil society to establish and achieve standards that promote gender equality and empower women. Once participating companies successfully complete the certification programme, they are awarded a Gender Equality Seal, a recognized symbol of gender equality in the workplace. In the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the UNDP Gender Equality Seal Certification Programme provides the public and private sectors with a roadmap and tool to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by reducing gender gaps and promoting both equality in the workplace and women’s economic empowerment. The Gender Equality Seal (GES) Certification Programme certifies that a company actively promotes equality among workers, and that it does so according to the requirements of a Gender Equality Management System (GEMS). By bringing in a gender perspective to a company’s overall management system, GEMS allows businesses to integrate comprehensive measures to change their organizational structure and culture, creating fairer and more decent conditions for workers. The aim is to develop a company strategy that incorporates gender equality as an integral part of corporate governance and “good business.” Implementing GEMS calls for the improvement of human resource management systems, including, for example, recruitment and promotion criteria, strategic planning and internal and external communication procedures. A well designed GEMS offers a clear path for implementing and evaluating the necessary measures to be adopted to reach gender equality in the company. The certification programme, launched in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), is now a global initiative with companies interested in joining it in a number of other regions. Since its launch in 2007, more than 1,700 national and multinational institutions in both public and private sectors in the LAC region have participated in the programme and some 1,400 have been certified by governments. Based on the experience and lessons learned, UNDP Turkey Country Office in Ankara and the Istanbul Regional Hub (IRH) of the UNDP Regional Bureau for Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (UNDP ECIS) plan to adapt the programme for Turkey in cooperation with the private sector and relevant state institutions. The incumbent will work with both UNDP Turkey Country Office in Ankara and the Istanbul Regional Hub (IRH) of the UNDP Regional Bureau for Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (UNDP ECIS) to design a Gender Seal Private Sector Programme for Turkey and formulate a model to implement the programme appropriate to the country context. 2.
