Contract award: Bioenergy for Sustainable Energy Access in Africa

LTS International (LTS), in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh (UoE) and E4tech, aim to implement Phase I of the DFID-funded Bioenergy for Sustainable Energy Access in Africa (BSEAA) research assignment. The 12-month study will investigate the challenges and opportunities affecting the adoption and roll out of bioenergy across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), and provide recommendations on affordable, accessible and innovative bioenergy technologies and business models that will improve poor people’s access to bioenergy. Phase I will lead to a follow-on project, BSEAA Phase II, which is likely to include further targeted research and may lead to direct DFID investment in promising bioenergy technologies in SSA. LTS will play a leading and managerial role in the assignment responsible for the overall coordination and delivery of outputs to the client. Specific tasks include academic literature review, public/donor stakeholder identification and consultation, country screening, technology prioritization, in-country visits and consultations, and leadership in consolidating learnings and handing over the results to Phase II suppliers.
