Consultancy to develop model electricity and energy sector law and primary and secondary laws at national level with renewable energy focus

Anguilla, Barbados, Dominika, Grenada, Jamaika, St. Lucia, St. Vincent
Customer: Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Greater George Town, Guyana, 2012 - 2013

The Consultant is entrusted to develop a Model legislation with complementary regulations as well as to support eight Member States Antigua and Barbuda, the Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Jamaica in formulating or amending their energy and electricity supply legislation aimed at creating an enabling framework to facilitate the development of RE, enhance the security of energy supplies and to promote greater efficiency of energy use. This legislation is intended to be versatile and all-encompassing to be adopted by most Member States with appropriate and relatively simple modifications that would give effect to the universal access to electricity.

Study on renewables-based rural electrification, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda

Customer: Agence Francaise de Développement (AFD), Paris, France, 2013

The study´s aim is it to establish the status of rural electrification projects under the application of renewable energies in East Africa. The structures and organizations of such projects are analyzed to identify bankable investment projects and financing possibilities for their development. The study also includes an investigation into aspects of long-term operation of rural electrification projects on the basis of renewable energies, so as to propose general concepts for contracts, regulation and the sustainability of power supply projects of this nature.

Concept development, structuring and overseeing the Smart Grids Platform for Baden-Württemberg, Germany

Customer: Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart, Germany 2013

Because of energy-political and economic developments, it is imperative for the Baden-Württemberg state to take major steps. The state government therefore initiated setting up the Baden-Württemberg Smart Grids Platform (SGP). On 29 November 2012, the SGP was launched as an association in a special event. This venture rendered, among others, the services: selection of and sending invitations to the circle of participants; proposing, inviting, briefing and quality control for presenters of motivational papers; assisting in preparation of these papers; conducting three or four workshops per project group from February to July; organizing presentation of the Road Map for Smart Grids, Baden-Württemberg, and the Smart Grids Platform in September 2013, with conclusion of assistance at the end of October 2013.

Indian/German research cooperation on climate protection/solar technology, India

Customer: KfW Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (Credit Institute for Reconstruction), Frankfurt, 2012 - 2013

The consultant draws up contract documents between India’s power utility, NTPC, and the German Aerospace Center, DLR, together with the Fraunhofer Institute regarding the provision of supplies and services as well as associated cooperation for research in solar power generation. The technologies addressed are concentrating solar power (CSP) and concentrating photovoltaic (CPV). This requires intensive communications with all three contractual parties as well as with the client, KfW.

Evaluation of incentive program for renewable energies in the German heating market

Customer: Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Reactor Safety, Berlin, 2013 - 2014

For comprehensive monitoring of results, the impacts of the incentive program for renewable energies in the heating market are assessed for each of the years 2012, 2013 and 2014. The aim is to determine whether the program objectives laid down in its funding guidelines are attained, the extent to which this promotion results in a measurable investment incentive, whether the promotion measures are compatible with environmental policy and are the reason for the outcomes, and whether the incentive program is implemented economically under each funding guideline. The findings are drawn on for formulating recommendations for the German Ministry of the Environment for future steering of this market incentive program and for drawing up guidelines to promote specific measures for exploiting renewable energies in the heating market.
