The solar PV plant will pilot utility-scale renewable energy development in Zanzibar, and the BESS will support the grid by providing supply needed to meet the evening peak and integrate VRE onto the island grid. In addition, this component will also support the technical design and supervision consultancy for the Solar PV and BESS. The consultancy will undertake feasibility studies, associated environmental and social studies, develop procurement documents, and supervise the construction.
