The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is seeking a member of the CTCN Network to prepare a feasibility study and development of an action plan for the promotion of manufacturing of components of small power wind turbines in Benin.
This assistance seeks to advise Benin on the question whether or not kick-starting a local wind manufacturing and deployment market by first analyzing feasibility of local manufacturing of equipment. Then, if the results of the feasibility study are positive, a second phase of the intervention will produce recommendations to Benin as to how to create a manufacturing market as well as how to spur the installation of small wind turbines through capacity building, policies, regulations, programs, and other measures. The anticipated outcome is that Benin stakeholders will be informed about the potentials of local small wind component manufacturing and a market to sell the produced technology to generate renewable energy in rural areas that were previously lacking reliable energy access.
Scope and activities:
• A report of the feasibility study on local manufacturing of small wind technology in Benin
• If a small wind manufacturing and deployment market is considered feasible: An Action Plan will be developed that will consist of details of small wind industry goals for the 2020 and 2030 timelines, a summary of small wind industry opportunities and pathways to fulfil these opportunities, and a high-level plan for implementation of a pilot manufacturing project
