Climate Technology Centre, hosted by UNEP in collaboration with the UN Industrial Development Organization, has issued a call for proposals for various technical assistance projects on geothermal direct use in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda.

The Climate Technology Centre is seeking proposals for implementation of technical assistance for individual projects in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. Deadline: 14 October 2019, 17:00 (Vienna time).

The technical assistance for direct use of geothermal energy in low to medium temperature geothermal systems was requested by 6 African countries in the Eastern Africa region. The countries lie within the Great East African Rift Valley (both at the eastern and western branches), a region that possesses a remarkable geothermal energy resource potential that can be used for power generation and direct use application.

The assistance aims at identifying the resource and its viability of geothermal direct use as well as identification of the most suitable technologies for the resources direct use implementation. This will aim to support the countries to further advance their climate commitments as geothermal energy has great contribution to make in energy sector decarbonization.
