The shortlisted developers will receive a formal invite to access the project’s data room to submit their final proposal for the two PV projects, each with a capacity of up to 125MW(AC). The winning bidders will be selected primarily on the basis of the lowest proposed tariff.

The Ethiopian tender represents the fifth Scaling Solar tender in Africa to date, with two rounds initiated in Zambia, one in Senegal and one in Madagascar. Last October, a consortium including Enel Green Power, a subsidiary of Italian power giant Enel, and Ethiopian infrastructure company Orchid Business Group won a 100MW(AC) solar tender also floated by EEP.

PV Tech also revealed in January that the World Bank plans to make energy storage an integral part of its ‘Scaling Solar’ program, that until now has been focused purely on facilitating large-scale solar tendering, predominantly in Africa.
