Fully-funded PhD Studentship in Micro-Grid Management and Control Systems - Providing Better Energy

Country: Global
Closes: November 1, 2018
Coventry University

Qualification Type:PhD
Location:Coventry
Funding for:UK Students, EU Students, International Students
Funding amount:£15,000 bursary plus tuition fees - UK/EU/International.
Hours:Full Time
Placed On:18th September 2018
Closes:1st November 2018

Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship (part of the CU Global Challenges Research programme) working to understand energy needs and providing new technical solutions for displaced populations in Rwanda and Nepal.

This Studentship will be based within an EPSRC-funded project called HEED-Refugee.  The successful applicant will be working on the development of wireless devices, algorithms and tools to support the development of integrated community-based micro-grids and micro-generation /distribution control strategies in refugee camps.

You will work within an interdisciplinary team of scientists, project collaborators and fellow doctoral researchers who are exploring a variety of topics around the design and evaluation of energy interventions (from mobile lanterns to micro-grids) in displaced population settings and particularly refugee camps.

Micro-grids augment the traditional approach of national electricity grids with local power generation and control; this potentially lowers costs and transmission losses. Some of the problems faced by communities when implementing micro-grids are to do with a lack of accessible tools for management and control. Management is needed to account for context dependent energy needs in a community served by a micro-grid. Control is required to allow non-essential systems to be powered when supply exceeds essential demands and essential systems need to benefit from power-up in critical situations. 

The project will: (1) map the current gaps in education and technology that make micro-grids inaccessible or difficult to apply in the context of displaced populations and refugee camps; and (2) develop prototype micro-grid management and control systems—based around wireless sensing and actuation—which are fit for purpose in functional deployed micro-grids.

All Coventry University Global Challenges Research Studentships include £15,000 bursary plus tuition fees - UK/EU/International. 

Start date January 2019

Application deadline date 4pm November 1st 2018

Interview dates Will be confirmed to shortlisted candidates

Enquiries may be addressed toProfessor Elena Gaura e.gaura@coventry.ac.uk

Feasibility Studies for piloting small-scale, turnkey Waste-to-Energy solutions

Type: RFP
Closes: March 16, 2018

The United Nations Development Programme - Jordan, Turkey, Tokelau

Waste management and access to energy services are important development issues that are often not sufficiently considered in humanitarian contexts. Current solutions often address the immediate needs of the population in crisis response, but do not always consider the longer-term impacts and future needs. Insufficient supply of energy and unsafe waste disposal, including pollution of water resources, can exacerbate public health threats and environmental problems, generate instability and conflict between affected populations, and have disastrous consequences for their future livelihoods. There is a need to identify viable waste management and energy supply solutions that can be applied quickly to a variety of humanitarian contexts. Such solutions should not only address the immediate needs after a disaster or crisis hits, but also protect the health, safety, environment and livelihoods of affected populations, while building resilience to future shocks and leading to a sustainable development path. Small-scale (average throughput on 5t/day with possibility for scale-up), turnkey waste-to-energy (WtE) onsite solutions (containerized, modular or other) provide an opportunity to address both waste management and energy supply challenges in humanitarian contexts.

...

The overall objective of this assignment is to conduct three feasibility studies covering each of the three pilot countries (Jordan, Turkey, Tokelau) and to prepare the necessary documentation (business model) for piloting small-scale, turnkey WtE solutions (containerized, modular, other) for humanitarian contexts in the selected countries.

This fund is made possible through support from the USAID-funded Developing a Sustainable Cookstove Sector (DSCS) Project, implemented by Winrock International.  The DSCS project’s goal is to mitigate negative climate, health and other development impacts caused by the inefficient use of biomass fuels for cooking through the development of sustainable cookstove markets that will lead to widespread adoption of clean, efficient cooking solutions. EETF funds will be used to hire certified trainers that have already been trained and certified by Winrock International (“Winrock”) under the USAID-funded Developing a Sustainable Cookstove Sector (DSCS) project.

The EETF will support organizations in conducting trainings using the Empowered Entrepreneur Training Handbook for entrepreneurs and sales agents - particularly women - who sell or contribute to the improved cookstove value chain (manufacturing, sales, distribution, service, etc.). The Fund may also support organizations in conducting trainings using the Empowered Entrepreneur Training Handbook for youth, with the purpose of having youth participants participate in and build clean energy markets through the sale of fuel efficient cookstoves or cleaner/alternative fuels.

4th Annual Women's Empowerment Fund (WEF)

Type: RFP
Organization: Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
Closes: April 2, 2017

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves has announced the launch of the 4th annual Women’s Empowerment Fund (WEF), which is designed to empower women energy entrepreneurs who are increasing access to much-needed cookstoves and fuel within their communities. The WEF provides funding to organizations working to increase the participation of women in clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels businesses to demonstrate that there is a positive impact on business performance and social impact when women are engaged in the value chain.  

With support from the U.S. Department of State, the WEF will award up to four grants in the suggested range of U.S.$75,000-$150,000 each. The selected WEF projects will have a 12-month time frame to meet concrete objectives and performance milestones. Applicants must utilize business models that strengthen women’s livelihood opportunities by bundling household energy products, including cookstoves and fuels. The Alliance encourages new partners to apply, particularly organizations that aim to incorporate clean cooking solutions into existing women’s empowerment and other development initiatives. The Alliance recognizes that one of the major challenges to scaling women’s empowerment is addressing the unpaid work burden that women face, leaving them with little free time to pursue income-generating activities. There is a clear link between unpaid work and cooking, and much unpaid work could be reduced or eliminated with access to more time-efficient and labor-saving technologies. Under the WEF, the Alliance and its partners will collect and analyze social impact data to better understand how access to clean and efficient household energy contributes to reductions in women’s unpaid work burden.

All applications must demonstrate how the gender best practices outlined in the Alliance’s Resource Guide on Scaling Adoption of Clean Cooking Solutions’ through Women’s Empowerment will be implemented throughout the project/business model. Strong applications will discuss the potential impact of the project on women’s social and economic well-being, including time use. Applicants should consult the Alliance’s Social Impact Measurement System and include any relevant socio-economic indicators that will be measured.

Request for Information on Small and Medium Scale Waste-to-Energy Solutions

Closes: March 24, 2017

Type: RFI
Country
: Multiple (see More Information)

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to provide the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with the latest knowledge of companies offering small and medium-scale Waste-to-Energy solutions which could be used to support UNDP’s Country Programmes.

UNDP expects to follow this RFI with an international bidding exercise for Waste-to-Energy solutions and the information provided in the RFI will be used to determine the feasibility, scope, timeframe and approximate resource requirements for such processes

UNDP wishes to explore potential applications of nascent cutting-edge technology solutions that couple safe waste management with sustainable energy production to address waste management constraints in countries facing man-made or environmental crisis.

Lack of proper waste management has significant health and environmental costs globally. These effects are exacerbated in developing countries where many communities are overpopulated and are exposed to unhealthy living conditions. Infectious diseases such as meningitis, measles, and cholera are accelerated as a result of inadequate sanitation.

Environmentally conscious methods of processing garbage significantly improve local environmental conditions and decrease toxic additions to soil, water, and air. Reduced environmental impact of settlements protects precious sources of ground water. Without options for safe garbage disposal and recycling, plastics and other waste end up in unprotected dump sites, rivers, and the ocean. Safe disposal of hazardous material can be difficult in many impoverished communities due to lack of education, transportation, adequate space, and infrastructure. Nowhere is it more difficult than in areas experiencing conflict, often home to transient populations and broken infrastructure.

Migration flows and a growing influx of refugees has caused population size to increase rapidly in areas affected by conflict. Unplanned growth strains local municipalities and their ability to deliver basic services to residents. Additional investment in health and sanitation services can help maintain residential and recreational spaces in good condition, and reduce tensions that are caused by resource constraints. Poor waste management can have a negative impact on social cohesion between host and refugee communities.  Setting up new and innovative models of waste management reduces pressure on local municipal systems and acts as an intervention to maintain political stability in fragile situations.

Against this background, UNDP is interested in exploring the potential application of emergent technologies that address two challenges concurrently, namely: (a) waste management – for example in connection with temporary migratory flows and population movement the likes of which occur with increased frequency wherever there is war or crisis; and (b) lack of adequate sources of energy for household or community consumption.

We are operating in more than 80 countries worldwide and helping more than 80 million people every year. Launched in 2016, the UN WFP Innovation Accelerator identifies, supports and scales high potential solutions to hunger worldwide. 

 The Innovation Accelerator support typically includes:

  1. Up to US$100000 per project with 0% equity;
  2. Access to countries of WFP operations: for early stage startups – possibility to pilot their solution, for more advanced startups– possibility to scale and access to markets in more than 80 countries in Africa, Middle East, Latin America and Asia;
  3. Hands-on support of entrepreneurs who know the tech and developing country world
  4. Access to a WFP’s network of potential investors/donors, partners and supporters.

This year’s challenge aims to find solutions and disruptive technologies to provide sustainable access to local and nutritious food in emergencies. Anyone globally can apply, entrepreneurs, students or passionate members of the public. With almost 800 million people around the world still going hungry everyday, and one every two affected by malnutrition, the program can have a transformative impact.

Low Carbon Energy Projects in Displacement Settings

Type: RFP
Closes: February 25, 2017

Organization: Moving Energy Initiative (MEI)
Locations: Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Jordan

This Call for Proposals is available in English and Francais.

The Moving Energy Initiative is a collaboration between Energy 4 Impact, Chatham House, Practical Action Consulting, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The programme is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

Phase 1 of the project started in Feb 2015 and entailed detailed research at two levels: a global review of the energy situation for displaced populations, and surveys of the energy economy in three specific locations - Kenya, Burkina Faso and Jordan. As a result of this research several toolkits and reports were published to highlight the current situation and raise the profile of this issue in the sector.

Building on the research conducted in Phase 1, the second phase, starting in June 2016, will implement a series of initiatives aimed at addressing identified bottlenecks and demonstrating new approaches on the ground. These initiatives are split into 8 work streams that combine a mix of global and local interventions led by the consortium partners which include improving energy management systems, implementing low carbon projects, developing local energy markets and exploring sustainable financing facilities. Through this work the Moving Energy Initiative aims to build the evidence base and case for change for humanitarian systems to improve the provision and management of energy services to displaced people.

MEI proposes to support investment in a small number of capital projects that will reduce fossil fuel consumption and improve energy access in displacement settings in Kenya, Burkina Faso and Jordan. Target projects supported by MEI will;

  1. Significantly reduce fossil fuels consumption in displacement settings or provide energy access to displaced populations, the surrounding communities or humanitarian operations; 
  2. Demonstrate new approaches and models that challenge the business as usual approach to energy service and provision in displacement settings and have the potential to be scaled up or replicated at scale;
  3. Offer a sustainable solution with local ownership, clear route for ongoing funding (business plan) and robust long term maintenance and/or training and market development plans to ensure the continued use of the solution;
  4. Serve as a demonstrator to other actors in the sector to encourage them to also improve their energy provision and adopt new methods and approaches.

Request for Proposal: Frame Agreement for the Provision of Fuel Efficient Cookstoves

Type: UN Tender/Procurement
Organization: United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
Closes: December 31, 2016


The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), invites manufacturers of cookstove to make a firm offer through a proposal for supply of fuel-efficient cookstoves.

Most of the food provided by humanitarian agencies such as the World Food Programme and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees must be cooked before it can be eaten. Rations typically include dried beans, corn, soy, rice, and/or flour. In the cases where cookstoves are provided in humanitarian settings, the quality varies widely from primitive mud cookstoves to metal and ceramic models, produced by artisans in the vicinity of refugee camps, and finally to prefabricated engineered cookstoves manufactured in developed nations. The majority of these cookstoves burn biomass and many displaced people, the majority of which are women and children, spend hours each day struggling to collect sufficient firewood from increasingly barren landscapes, exacerbating conflicts with host communities, and putting themselves at risk of attack or injury. More efficient and cleaner cookstoves, fuels, and energy technologies can play a significant role in improving quality of life of crisis-affected populations. Over the past several years, key developments in the clean cooking and humanitarian sectors have paved the way for a more streamlined and effective approach to improving the cooking experience in humanitarian settings. In 2010, the recently formed Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) outlined a goal of catalyzing 100 million households to adopt clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels by 2020, in order to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women, and protect the environment.

Gender-based Violence & Clean and Efficient Cookstove and Fuel Interventions in Humanitarian Setting

Type: RFA
Organization: Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
Closes: October 21, 2016


The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is pleased to announce a request for applications (RFA) to support research to evaluate and increase understanding of the links between clean and/or efficient cookstove and fuel interventions and GBV in humanitarian settings, with preference given to studies that take place in Rwanda. All Alliance partners are eligible to apply. Letters of Intent are highly encouraged and are due on September 19, 2016Applications are due on October 21, 2016 at 11:59 pm EDT. Please submit all inquiries, letters of intent, and full applications to gender@cleancookstoves.org.

Up to $200,000 will be available to support one study over a 12-month period, dependent on scope and scale of activities proposed. Applicants must be partners of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. For partnership details, and to register as a partner, visithttp://cleancookstoves.org/partners/register.html.

Proposals must include or consider the following components:

  1. The proposed research must contribute to the evidence base demonstrating if and how clean and/or efficient cookstove and/or fuel interventions impact risk and/or incidence of GBV. More specifically, the research must measure non-partner sexual and physical violence and/or attempted non-partner sexual and physical violence during firewood collection. Proposals that seek to measure incidence of non-partner sexual and physical violence during firewood collection are strongly encouraged. Proposals that consider the larger landscape of GBV in humanitarian settings and seek to understand potential unintended consequences, including for example intimate partner violence, will be prioritized.
  2. Research that compares multiple cooking approaches in order to evaluate which types of interventions are more likely to impact GBV will be given preference. Variation in approach is not limited to different technologies or fuel types, but rather can include elements such as: comparing approaches that include additional interventions such as livelihood activities, GBV sensitization, engagement of the host community, etc.
  3. Proposed methodology should include, at minimum, baseline assessments measuring GBV indicators prior to the start of a clean and/or efficient cooking project, and mid-line and end-line assessments to determine the impact of the interventions. Quantitative methods are required, but a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods is preferred.
  4. Proposed research must take place in a humanitarian setting, such as a refugee camp, IDP settlement, or crisis-affected area. Preference will be given to proposals seeking to conduct research in Rwandan refugee camps. The evaluated cooking project can be implemented as part of the study, however it must build on or replicate previous interventions that have demonstrated effectiveness in user adoption, including correct and consistent use of the cookstove and/or fuel. Evaluated projects can also include existing cooking interventions that are being scaled to new beneficiaries. 
  5. Proposals must include training by the academic/research institution for the humanitarian implementing staff on developing and conducting quality baseline and end-line evaluations (including GBV indicators) to ensure continuous monitoring and evaluation. All materials (questionnaire, training program, etc.) should be made public and shared online for others to use when conducting humanitarian energy assessments on GBV indicators.

Capacity Building Support for Clean Fuel Enterprises

Type: RFA
Organization: Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
Closes: July 28, 2016


The Global Alliance is releasing a Call for Projects to provide capacity building support to enterprises specifically focused on efficient biomass fuel supply chains. The Call for Projects is specifically for higher performing fuels and enterprises, performing at Tier 2 or better for efficiency, indoor and total emissions. “Efficient biomass” would include projects such as processed biomass and biomass-based ethanol.

The Global Alliance’s partner, ENEA Consulting, will perform a combination of desk and in person support to the selected enterprises, working with them to identify their fuel production potential to help them set strategic targets. Between 3-5 fuel enterprises will be selected to receive this capacity building support. The work will be conducted over a period of 5 months from August – December 2016.

The Global Alliance’s strategy around fuels is to work with partners and sector experts to improve utilization of biomass as well as strengthen supply chains and markets for cleaner fuels over time. Supporting greater capacity, more efficient production, and distribution of optimized biomass fuel sources will help fuel enterprises overcome market barriers to scale, strengthen their business models, as well as influence government and investor support for more efficient and cleaner cooking fuels. It will also enable local populations to access cleaner fuels for household energy use, helping to reduce the adverse and devastating health, gender, livelihood, and environmental impacts that result from cooking over open fires, burning solid and unprocessed biomass, and using traditional cookstoves.

More details on the Call for Projects is provided in the attached RFP available here: http://cleancookstoves.org/resources/477.html.

Installation and Operation of PV Solar Systems in Host Communities - Jordan

Type: UN Tender/Procurement
Country: Jordan
Closes: July 12, 2016

Organization: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

Jordan is one of the world’s most energy insecure countries, importing 97 % of its energy needs. In urban areas, many of the refugees live in sub-standard accommodation with potential risks from unsafe electrical or gas connections. There is minimal insulation in the local infrastructure requiring in many cases which increases the need for heating in winter and cooling in summer.

To meet the increased energy demands arising from the presence of Syrian refugees and migrants in cities and towns, there is a clear and urgent need to create a more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable solution which meets the energy needs of the refugee communities in a manner that could overcome the associated challenges faced by refugee families.

 As part of a project to address these challenges, UNDP is requesting quotations for the installation and operation of PV solar systems in host communities.

Innovations to Prevent Gender-Based Violence

Type: RFP
Closes: December 9, 2015

The World Bank Group and nonprofit Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) today announced an open call for funding proposals for work aimed at preventing gender-based violence in low- and middle-income countries.

SVRI and the World Bank Group will provide grants of up to US$150,000 for innovations to prevent gender-based violence (GBV), a severe and neglected problem affecting more than one in three women worldwide and a major challenge for global development.

Applications must be submitted online here by December 9, 2015. 

An expert panel will review all proposals and disburse up to US$1.2 million to selected applicants for projects including research, interventions, or other activities related to gender-based violence prevention.

Completed proposals will be processed by SVRI and World Bank Group (WBG) colleagues and peer-reviewed by an expert committee between January and April 2016. Results will be announced in April 2016 and awards made based on overall merit, research/project design and methods, significance of the proposed project, project manager/team, and ethical considerations.

The competition is sponsored by the World Bank Group and by an anonymous donor in honor of victims of gender-based violence around the world and in memory of Hannah Graham, who grew up in the Washington, DC area, where the Bank Group is headquartered, and was a second-year college student at the University of Virginia when she died in 2014.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 35 percent of women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual partner violence or non-partner sexual violence, or roughly 938 million women, nearly the population of Africa. In addition to the devastating personal costs, conservative estimates of resulting lost productivity range from 1.2 of GDP in Brazil and Tanzania to 2 percent in Chile-approximately what most governments spend on primary education.

The SVRI Grant, a global innovation grant started in 2014, has awarded more than US$1 million to nine projects in seven countries. SVRI uses an innovative mix of evidenced-based information, communication and technology media, and capacity-building workshops and events to advance and expand research on sexual violence globally.

This competition will employ the Bank Group's Development Marketplace Crowdsourcing Method. Now housed under the Social Enterprise Innovations Program in the WBG Leadership, Learning, and Innovation Vice Presidency, the Development Marketplace has awarded more than US$65 million in grants to more than 1,200 innovative social enterprises and raised awareness about the role of social enterprises in addressing challenges facing the poor.

The Social Enterprise Innovations Program helps scale these innovations through public-private dialogue, structured learning for social enterprises and policymakers, and systematic evidence-gathering on the performance of social enterprise innovations. This helps maximize the potential for scale and links grantees more closely to WBG operations and public sector counterparts.

RFA: Evaluating Sustained Adoption of Clean Cookstoves and Fuels

Type: RFA
Organization: Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
Closes: March 20, 2015

The Translating Research into Action (TRAction) Project and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (the Alliance) are releasing this joint solicitation for research focused on the implementation and outcomes of efforts to promote adoption of clean cooking technologies and factors influencing sustained use over time.

The purpose of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to invite proposals to study the motivators and barriers to sustained adoption of clean cooking technologies. It is expected that this implementation research will be nested within and designed around clean cooking distribution programs that are already in progress, especially market-based or humanitarian approaches to scaling up access to clean cooking. The research is intended to identify key determinants influencing the sustained correct, consistent, and exclusive use of clean cooking technologies (demonstrably clean cookstoves and/or fuels) in order to inform future implementation efforts aiming to reduce household air pollution and ultimately decrease the burden of disease in women and children. TRAction and the Alliance anticipate making up to 4 awards of approximately USD 200,000-300,000 each. Please see attached RFA for detail. The proposed research, up to 12 months in duration, including planning/preparation activities, fieldwork activities, and analysis, must be completed by June 2016.
