Project Title

Development of Renewable Energy Applications for Market Mainstreaming and Sustainability

 

Project Description

The Development for Renewable Energy Applications Mainstreaming and Market Sustainability (DREAMS) is a 5-year project (2017-2022) funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), with the UNDP as the Implementing Agency. The Department of Energy, through the Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB) serves as the Implementing Partner. The project seeks to achieve the following:

  2. Outcome indicators: Direct emissions reductions will be 205,181 tons of CO2 equivalent and 20,000 sitio-based households will have access to RE sources.
  3. Components and Expected outcomes:

Components

Outcomes

Context of the Required Services

An Individual Contractor (IC) is required that will serve as Technical Coordinator during the installation and initial operation of the Management Information System (MIS) of the Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB-MIS).

 

Purpose and Relevance of the work vis-a-vis Project Context

This activity is under Component 2 of the DREAMS Project. A REMB MIS will lead to expediting the approval of RE projects and the establishment of RE knowledge platform (website). This activity also supports Component 4 that calls for the establishment of site specific RE resource databases.

 

The REMB MIS (or RIS for brevity) was designed to enhance the internal capacity of the REMB to store and process data for the purpose of monitoring and evaluating the status of the planned, or-going and completed RE projects. The RIS will also be used to as an input gauge the Year-on-Year accomplishment of the targets contained in the National RE Program 2020-2040.

 

The RIS will be also accessible to the Field Offices of the DOE.

 

Stakeholders for the Project

The Department of Energy (DOE) is the Implementing Partner of the UNDP and GEF for the DREAMS Project. DOE assumes overall responsibility for the achievement of project results. The Project is co-financed with funding from the GEF and UNDP. UNDP acts as the Implementing Agency of GEF. All components of the Project including the Annual Work Plan is being managed and implemented by the Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB).

 

The UNDP handles the procurement and contracting of goods and services under this project. However, the payment for procured goods and services is made only upon approval of DOE-REMB.

 

A Project Support Group (PSG) composed of technical staff/specialist from the other Bureaus and divisions of DOE has been formed to provide technical advice in the implementation of the activities including monitoring and evaluation. A Project Steering Committee (PSC) has been established to serve as a policy and decision-making body for the project implementation.[1]

 

A Project Management Unit (PMU) coordinates the implementation of the project based on the approved Annual Work Plan (AWP) and Budget. The PMU is headed by a National Project Director (NPD) who is also the Director of the REMB. A Project Manager and support staff oversees the day to day operations of the DREAMS PMU. The PMU is located at the office of the DOE in Taguig, Metro Manila. The IC will also coordinate with focal technical persons at the 3 Field offices of the Department of Energy.
