Germany’s development agency GIZ called on firms, educational institutions and institutes in Serbia to prepare offers for producing a grid integration study for prosumers.
GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) is implementing a project called Promotion of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Serbia, which was commissioned by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The goal is to improve the legal, institutional and technical framework for the promotion of sustainable energy technologies. The main focus is on enhancing the usage of solar energy in decentralized energy production by supporting the prosumer approach.
Germany’s development agency is currently looking for a company, educational institution or institute to assess the readiness of each part of the electricity distribution grid to connect prosumer installations, mainly rooftop solar power units. In the grid integration study for prosumers in Serbia, the contractor will be tasked with assessing the distribution grid, pointing out possible bottlenecks and recommending improvements while providing a rough cost assessment for the period until 2030.
