The International Solar Alliance (ISA) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for solar rooftop demonstration projects in its member countries. These projects will be developed under the so-called RESCO model.

The tentative aggregate capacity to be developed in each member country will not exceed 1 MW, and the intention is for systems to be installed on offices and residences of the head of state and head of government, as well as the chief of the judiciary and the head of the legislature, and suggested and approved by the National Focal Points.

The ISA issued this RFP on Dec. 30, 2017. Interested companies have time until Jan. 15, 2018 to submit their detailed proposals that exhibit the capability of the organization and their previous experience in similar prestigious projects.

The organization will facilitate interaction with the National Focal Points along with policymakers from the identified countries.

RfP details are available on the ISA’s website.

ISA is the first treaty-based international intergovernmental organization headquartered in India. According to the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), 46 countries have signed and 19 countries have ratified the ISA’s framework agreement.

It has launched three programs to date:

  • Scaling Solar Applications for Agriculture Use,
  • Affordable Finance at Scale, and
  • Scaling Solar Mini-grids.

Furthermore, the plan is to launch another two programs:

  • Scaling Solar Rooftops, and
  • Scaling Solar E-mobility and Storage.

With these rooftop solar demonstration projects, ISA is hoping it will help all stakeholders including policymakers, the general populace and utilities to ‘appreciate the benefits of rooftop solar projects and also to prepare the roadmap for the same.’
