Lesotho power projects

The Lesotho Electricity Company Ltd (LEC) is seeking expressions of interest from consultants to carry out an African Development Fund-backed renewable energy grid integration study. The study will assess LEC’s transmission and distribution networks to establish the level absorption possible for renewable energy in the medium to long term. The study will provide results for different scenarios for renewable generation and for the distribution system and look at technical barriers to greater adoption of renewable energy, including grid management and lowering the cost of generation. The work also includes improving the capacity of LEC staff to undertake transmission and distribution planning and analysis through structured training. The contract will last for seven months. Bids are due by 18 February 2019.
