Project Description:

The Private Sector Early Stage Geothermal Development Framework (“PLUTO” or the “Programme”), approved by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD” or the “Bank”) Board of Directors on 9 December 2015, is a framework of USD 125 million will enable geothermal energy developers to explore and begin production of geothermal wells in Turkey with the objective of filling the funding gap currently existing for those sub projects at exploratory stages of geothermal development.

The overall objective of the assignment is to provide analytical support to the Government of Turkey in developing a holistic strategic plan allowing the use of geothermal resources in a sustainable manner. Sustainable management basically involves setting up and maintaining a specific long-term production scheme. It also involves the basic ingredients of successful geothermal resource management, i.e. reinjection, monitoring and modelling.

Assignment Description:

In the context of the Programme, the Bank now intends to engage a consultant (the “Consultant”) in order to produce a Cumulative Impact Assessment (the “CIA”) which will be composed of two parts: a scoping study in Phase I and a CIA study in Phase II (the “Assignment”). The scoping study will define the issues that need to be addressed in the CIA study, considering the specific context in which the sector is being developed and is likely to be implemented. Precise activities and calendar for the CIA study will be determined on the basis of the conclusions of the scoping study.

The detailed scope of work and services (the “Services”) are further described in the full Terms of Reference (the “ToRs”) attached hereto:
