BACKGROUND

 

In 2012 the Nauru Government requested support in the development of an energy sector plan. The Nauru Energy Road Map (NERM) 2014-2020 was developed with assistance from several donors and development partners and endorsed by Cabinet in January 2015. Since then it has served as an implementation plan for Nauru’s Energy Policy Framework (NEPF) from 2009. The European Union (EU), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) support the Enabling the Implementation of the Nauru Energy Road Map project with the following planned outputs: i) an Energy Unit, Department of Commerce, Industry and Environment (DCIE) established and operational; ii) energy sector wide legislation and regulations including for residential solar photovoltaic (PV) systems established; iii) technical standards developed or adopted including for residential solar PV systems; and, iv) capacity developed on new energy legislation and regulation and technical standards. In this context, a consultant is needed to review the NERM 2014-2020, prepare an updated NERM covering the period 2018-2020, and, undertake a legislative gap analysis. It is the intention that the updated NERM 2018-2020 will feed into a review and update/revision of the National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS) 2005-2025 that is commencing soon as well as be the key planning document for the new Energy Unit, which will be operational shortly. Concerning the legislative gap analysis, it is the plan this it will be a key technical input for the Legislative Drafter from the Department of Justice and Border Control (DJBC), which will prepare the actual bill(s).
