Developing Energy Efficiency Standards and Labelling for Morocco

 | Published February 17, 2016  -  Deadline March 16, 2016
cpvs


Project Description:
Industry and Tertiary sectors represent 30% of total energy consumption in Morocco (2013). Given the significant and rising cost associated with this energy use, it is critical that Morocco encourages investments in energy efficiency in these sectors. An analysis of the efficiency of the energy systems in use in Morocco shows that considerable progress is required to reach the level of energy efficiency observed in OECD countries.

In response to this challenge, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the 'EBRD' or the 'Bank') has launched two instruments to support energy efficiency: MorSEFF, a dedicated credit line for energy efficiency and FINTECC, a facility for promoting climate technologies.

Following experience in other countries such instruments such as MorSEFF and FINTECC are made much more effective if complemented with government-established minimum energy efficiency performance standards and labels.

Experience in many countries has shown that energy efficiency standards & labelling (S&L) is one of the most effective policy instruments to support energy efficiency investment. Energy efficiency S&L are sets of procedures and regulations that prescribe minimum performance for manufactured products and require labels to indicate the products' performance for energy use. Energy efficiency S&L will help phase out environmentally harmful products and incentivise energy efficient technology. These technologies are important because they account for around 60% of the Energy Efficiency (EE) potentials in Morocco.

Assignment Description:
The Bank now intends to engage a consulting firm or group of firms (the 'Consultant') to support Morocco's National Agency for the Development of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (the 'Client') establish best practice EE S&L policies and regulations in Morocco (the 'Assignment') in a manner that is fully aligned with, and complements, the MorSEFF and FINTECC.

The expected outcome of the Assignment is to support Morocco to transform its markets for energy efficient technology through designing and implementing best practice energy efficiency S&L policies, standards, regulations and programmes.

The contracting entity will be the Bank.

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:

1. Selection of four priority equipment types
This task will involve the selection of four priority equipment types based on a range of considerations, including:
a) an analysis of the main energy-related equipment types used in Morocco;
b) an estimate of the total annual energy use of the main energy-related equipment types in Morocco;
c) an estimate and ranking of the energy saving potential of the main energy-related equipment types in Morocco;
d) the appropriateness of selecting this equipment in light of the coverage by EBRD's MorSEFF and FINTECC.

2. Energy efficiency standards legislation
Provide assistance to the Client with drafting any necessary legislative amendments required for minimum energy performance standards to be effective for the four priority equipment types and to ensure the legislation is consistent with international best practice and, where appropriate, the MorSEFF and FINTECC.

3. Technical energy performance standards
Provide support to the Client to draft the regulations establishing the technical resource performance standards for the four priority equipment types as well as standards for the necessary testing regimes to ensure compliance.

4. Labelling legislation and regulations
Assist the Client to draft any necessary legislative/regulatory amendments and/or instruments to implement best-practice energy efficiency labelling for the four priority equipment types in Morocco.

5. Monitoring, verification and enforcement protocols
Support the Client to design an appropriate monitoring, verification and enforcement protocol for Morocco for the four priority equipment types.

6. Capacity building and Global awareness raising
Organise up to 5 half-day workshops aimed at raising the awareness of the importance of energy efficiency standards and labelling. The consultant will also be required to provide support to the Client to elaborate/develop guides or communication support/flyers on main EE equipment/process or experience/good practices in industry.

Additional information about MorSEFF and FINTECC can be found at www.morseff.com and www.ebrd.com/fintecc respectively.

Status of Selection Process:
Interested firms or groups of firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest.

Assignment Start Date and Duration:
The Assignment is expected to start in June 2016 and has an estimated overall duration of 24 months.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment:
USD 445,000 (exclusive of VAT). Subject to availability of funding, the performance of the selected Consultant, and the specific needs of the Bank and/or the Client, the Assignment may be extended beyond the current scope.

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.

Clarification issued 05/01/2016

The following correction in section 'Assignment Description' and Tasks should be noted: "- Regulations: Analyse existing regulations and policies on the efficient use of resources and quality standards in the country."

Project Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD" or "Ban") has invested in the dairy sector in its countries of operation, with positive effects on companies' productivity, resource-efficiency and competitiveness. Dairy production has a major social and economic role in Morocco where small rural households alongside agribusinesses account for most of the production. The dairy sector accounts for 5% of total employment and highly contributes to agricultural value added. While milk production and consumption are increasing, efficiency and productivity remain low and product quality issues constrain further sector development. The dairy sector in Morocco has significant potential to improve its resource-use and product quality for enhanced competitiveness. Production efficiency, water use, renewable energy, and waste utilisation are still low in comparison with international peers.

Assignment Description: EBRD intends to engage a consultancy firm (the "Consultant") to carry out a study to better understand the investment potential in resource efficiency and product quality along the dairy value chain in Morocco. The study will help the Bank prepare investment projects with existing or new dairy clients and will support the dairy sector’s transition to enhanced environmental sustainability, labour practices and community welfare, competitiveness, and quality standards.

The Consultant is expected to do the following tasks:
- Stakeholder mapping: Identify major stakeholders and sources of official/public data in Morocco.
- Sector overview: Through desk-based research, fact-finding meetings with stakeholders and audits in selected Companies facilities, conduct a high-level overview of the sector/sub-sector, covering business volumes, market trends and priorities in the Country
- Benchmarking: Review available market and benchmarking studies comparing the prevailing production technologies, yields, food quality standards, and resource efficiency (in particular energy and water intensity) of the sector/sub-sectors with international best practice.
- Regulations: Analyse existing regulations and policies on the efficient use of resources and quality standards in the country.
- Audits: In close consultation with the Bank, prepare fact-finding missions to meet selected market players and visit specific production facilities in order to (a) confirm the gaps in technology, resource efficiency, and product standards compared to international best practice; and (b) review opportunities and barriers to enhancing resource efficiency, environmental performance and quality standards (c) Prepare a detailed prioritised investment plan of least-cost alternatives whose implementation will improve the plants’ resource efficiency, productivity, environmental and food/quality standards.
- Recommendations: Identify bottlenecks that can be addressed to improve the sector’s performance and prepare policy and investment recommendations for each facility.
- Case studies: In close consultation with the EBRD OL, develop 4 case studies of the most technically viable and economically attractive investment opportunities in resource efficiency and improved quality and environmental standards, chosen from the facilities visited.
- Benchmarking: Prepare a benchmarking assessment of the main sub-sectors and the entire sector, as well as a set of priority investment programmes.
- Workshop: At the end of the assignment, organise a regional workshop with major sector stakeholders from the country, to present assignment results and discuss priority areas in policy and technology transition. The workshop location will be decided in close coordination with the EBRD OL and according to the study findings.
