Muscat (WAF): Muscat (WAF): Authority for Electricity Regulation of Oman (AER) has received 18 offers for the Government Buildings Energy Audits and Retrofits (also known as the National Energy Efficiency Program), Qais al-Zakwani Executive Director of AER told WAF News.
In October, AER issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) document for the program which aims to cover 70% of government buildings falling under the Cost Reflective Tariff scheme -imposed on January 2017 on large power consumers- by 2023.
Al-Zakwani said that after evaluating the bids, the Authority will appoint an advisor to assist in setting the framework to enable the participation of energy service companies (ESCOs) and invite proposals for the auditing and retrofitting of government buildings
“Local investment funds -including pension funds- see the good opportunity to finance such program. They will be able to gain from the Revenue Sharing Agreement, and the country will be able to save gas quantities for other uses” al-Zakwani said.
The National Energy Efficiency Program is one of AER’s plans under the Energy Efficiency Initiative and one of Tanfeedh outcomes. The initiative will be officially inaugurated on the 12 of December.
