UN-Habitat Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI): Demonstration Energy Efficiency Building Project

Deadline: 28 July 2016

UN-Habitat invites international NGOs and governmental organisations to submit an expression of interest (EOI) for its Urban Energy Unit with a motive to improve the poor building design, the poor sanitation services for the public and the access to clean and reliable energy services in urban areas.

The objective of this project is to build a Multifunctional Clean Energy Centre to promote access to basic services and clean energy (biogas system and solar energy) in urban areas. The project will serve as a demonstration center for sustainable building design, renewable energy and provision of sanitation service through a public toilet.

Project Activities

  • Construction of the Multifunctional Clean Energy Centre – designed by UN-Habitat;
  • Installation of renewable energy systems: biogas and solar systems. The building will be an energy plus building meaning that it will generate its own energy through solar energy and biogas system
  • Construction of cooking facilities linked to the biogas system (Bio-digester 100m3 capacity). The biogas can be utilized directly for cooking and the community can benefit from the public kitchen space
  • Installation of solar panel energy: Solar PV elements will be used for normal applications including lighting, recharging of mobile phone, lanterns etc
  • Training on operation and maintenance of the systems

Funding Information

UN-Habitat will contribute a maximum of USD 35,000 towards the implementation of the project which will be executed through an Agreement of Cooperation.
