PURPOSE OF THIS CONTRACT

Oxfam in Cambodia is looking for a potential service provider or private company that can offer training on rooftop solar operations and maintenance to around 10 community members in Kaoh Snaeng village, Stung Treng province. The training program will be customized to suit the local community's ability to grasp the technical aspects of solar rooftop systems. The selected service provider or private company will also supply the necessary materials for the community members who will become the local operations and maintenance service providers.

 

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT

In recent years, Cambodia has been experiencing a growing interest in renewable energy, specifically solar, wind, biomass, biogas, and hydropower. This surge is driven by the country's efforts to diversify its energy sources, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and promote sustainable development. The Royal Government of Cambodia has introduced four significant policies among others related to renewable energy: the Updated Nationally Determined Contribution, the Long-Term Strategy for Carbon Neutrality, the National Energy Efficiency Plan, and the Power Development Masterplan 2022-2040.

Collaborative efforts among government officials, development agencies, civil society organizations, private sectors, and communities are crucial for the successful implementation of these initiatives, as stand-alone initiatives can be challenging. However, empowering communities to take ownership of their own development has proven to be more effective and sustainable in the long term. Currently, numbers of development partners and CSOs including Oxfam in Cambodia are engaged in projects focused on community-owned renewable energy. These projects involve establishing village management committees that oversee the management of renewable energy within their communities, with support for capacity building provided by private sector and civil society organizations.

Steps have been taken to ensure that affordable and dependable access to electricity is available to all individuals. Various solutions, such as mini-grid solar systems, rooftop solar installations, and mesh-grid solar setups, have been implemented in off-grid communities to enable community members to access electricity. However, community members encounter challenges, particularly when it comes to maintaining these solar systems.

Recognizing the potential, Oxfam in Cambodia views this as a chance to empower community members by addressing their specific needs and enhancing their skills in solar rooftop operations and maintenance. Through this initiative, community members will receive comprehensive training that encompasses both fundamental and technical skills. This training will enable them to effectively maintain solar rooftop systems within their own community and potentially extend their services to neighboring communities.
