In view of the developments in the six years since the formulation of Fiji’s first energy policy and noting the objectives set this year by the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All initiative, the Government of Fiji, with funding from the German Government, intends to undertake a review of the national energy policy and the accompanying strategic action plan. The review would include an analysis of the existing legislative framework and recommendations for legislative changes to facilitate the future development of the energy sector. This exercise is intended to be carried out with full consultation and participation of key actors (private sector, public institutions, NGOs, financial institutions, development partners, civil society representatives, etc.).
Suitably qualified and experienced consulting firms are invited to submit Expressions of Interest (EoI) to carry out the energy policy review. Key deliverables expected from the review are:
1. A report on the status of mainstreaming the 2006 energy policy and strategic action plan including level of integration into key government planning and budgetary processes at all levels;
2. A revised or new energy policy document;
3. A revised or new strategic action plan including a list of key activities to realize national policy objectives,
formulated to integrate with the current planning and monitoring frameworks of the Government of Fiji; and
4. A gap analysis paper of existing legislation and identification of changes and/or recommendations on new energy related legislation required.
The contracting agency will be GIZ GmbH (German Agency for International Cooperation). The contract will be supervised jointly by the Fiji Department of Energy with the Ministry of Works, Transport and Public Utilities and the SPC‐GIZ Coping with Climate Change in the Pacific Island Region programme (CCCPIR).
