Moroccan electricity and water utility company ONEE is looking to hire a consultant to create a platform for monitoring and managing renewable power on the grid and determine the amount of green electricity that the grid can safely transport.
The utility company has already launched a call for express of interest, Moroccan daily Le Matin reports.
The consultant will help ONEE with the technical specification of a dedicated platform for dispatching renewable power on the grid as well as determine the capacity that can be added without compromising safety on the very-high tension and high-tension grids.
ONEE has secured funding for the job under a loan agreement with the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) or the World bank.
The Clean and Efficient Energy Project, as the facility is named, is co-financed by a USD 125 million (EUR 114.3m) World Bank loan and a USD 23.95 million loan from the Clean Technology Fund.
The legal documents for the funds were signed on July 2, 2015 and both IBRD and CTF loans were declared effective on October 28, 2015.
The funding was primarily obtained to finance the development of the first set of three mid-size decentralized solar photovoltaic (PV) plants under the Noor-Tafilalet solar power programme.
Part of the money, about USD 5 million, according to project documentation of the World bank, has been set aside for supporting ONEE's planning and dispatching of renewable energies on the grid.
