September 18, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan Electricity Corporation (SSEC) utility has launched a call for consultants to help define the renewable energy development program in Africa’s newest nation.

SSEC, in a statement, said consultants must have relevant professional experience, especially in development of private sector, grid-connected solar projects and associated battery storage.

“The winning bidder will be tasked with defining the tender mechanism for the procurement of clean energy generation capacity,” partly reads SSEC’s consultancy tender document.

“Eligibility criteria, establishment of the short-list and the selection procedure shall be in accordance with the African Development Bank’s procurement policy framework for bank group funded operations (October 2015),” it added.

Meanwhile South Sudan has asked Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa, a multi-donor trust fund administered by the African Development Bank to provide $990,000 for the renewable energy program.

According to Renewable Energy Council of South Sudan (RECOSS), South Sudan is endowed with abundant untapped renewable energy resources such as solar power, biomass, wind power, hydro-power and fossil fuel used for power generation.

Established in 2018, RECOSS is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit making organization founded by renewable energy experts, operators, environmentalists and distinguished energy professionals to promote renewable energy technologies and efficiency in the country.

South Sudan reportedly has the lowest per capita electricity consumption in Africa, 1 to 3 kWh. This situation is mainly attributed to the underdeveloped energy infrastructure in the young nation, severely impacted by decades of civil wars.

    South Sudan will be a great country again, with peace in our country, real development will take place. We have our government, we have our majority of people, we have big land, we have many resources and we have good people. We are asking those tiny minority of rebels like NAS to take concrete and reasonable steps and accept peace. Nothing will stop us from moving forward.

      What "real peace" are you lazy sloth talking about? Did NAS stop you from developing your fucking jiengestans? Did Riek go to your areas and drove you out? What use is a large, illiterate, dormant and foolish population,if it cant be productive and transform the livelihoods of its people? You are trying to hold others accountable for your godamn loser jienge lives. 🐒

                You jienges have turned the country into the Republic of Self Service where thugs, criminals and bandits help themselves at the expense of the rest with this bogus jienge narrative "we liberated SS". Other 63 tribes should have kept away from this fucking referendum for separation and we see how these miscreants would have done it alone.

                  You monkeys are very lucky that we liberated this country so that you can enjoy freedom even though Bari people still shitting on the streets of Juba. Referendum was brought by our blood. If for any reason referendum fails, we will do what monkeys can not forget in their life, I don’t want to mention it here, but the consequences will be severe for monkeys. We do have all power.

                    Worthless jienge kaffir. How did you jienges end up not liberating your jiengelands? Cuz all had fled to Equatoria or headed toward Kakuma. Your jiengelands were and are still shitholes without relevance. Again fools are good for fighting, but intelligent people are good to govern and lead to dummy majority.God gave you less brains but big muscles to labor as slaves.

                  Very dirty person and coward. Your shit kokora was killed and buried for good. We can allow you only to KARAMA, we have no problem with that. Just keep producing children from random sex in KARAMA. Country is in the right hands of people who liberated it. Ugly people like you will stay in DIASPORA for the rest of their life, end of the game.

        South South, the cheerleader of the clueless majority doesn’t even understand what renewable energy is....

        He should be more concerned with the plight of Tonj people who have to roll up their chap-wong robes to wad through murky waters in the middle of their ’city’- the majority have demanded for more states and here they have it in tanks..!

          South South,

          These things of renewable energy is too advanced for you.

          Try to sit with your people to start thinking of developing local coping strategies not talking about renewable energy.

          Look at what has befallen the residents of Thiet ’town’...

            At the moment, only Eastern Equatoria with HEP at Fula, Lerwa and Katire and Central Equatoria with some HEP at Beden are of significance. Other potentials are at Suwe in Western Bahr el Ghazal.

            South South, if your misleaders in Juba reason, you could use crude oil to power Wartsil Generators instead of buying Museveni’s power expensively. You morons don’t reason.

    Some times back when Dr. Machar was VP of GoSS and minister for housing & public utilities, an invester approached him with the deal of generating power from Tharjat oil field using the Wartsila generators and crude oil from the field, then the power transmitted to Juba, Wau, Malakal, etc. Since this was seen as an idea not originated by a Dinka, it was rejected because the majority noise...!

      Eastern,

      I know for sure you are a big lair in this forum. Dinka tribe will keep itching your ass until you die and nothing you can do about it. Things are moving well these days in South Sudan. Peace is up and UN can tell you that. Mining will start soon, more oil will be out. Renewable Energy will occupy our houses, business with our neighbor countries look very promising. We have our country.

        The only Dinka was Dr Garang, all the rest are simply jienge savages who must first be civilized to read and write and also learn to live among civilized people. Stop running naked and say "we are born to rule, cuz we are brutal and rude jienge savages" Barbarians did that and today, they are history.

          Hey charcoal face, What you said was pretty interesting considering your ancestors walked naked as well as never made any civilizations before europeans came. Most equatorians are also illiterate.

          Your IQ is too low to realize you’re talking about yourself too. Retard. The chimp is clearly projecting some of it’s insecurities

            Ofcourse I am Black and Proud, that is why the ancient Greeks called our forefathers "Ethiopians" not to confuse with modern Ethiopians as "Abbesha" and the Arabs "Bilad al Sud" Sudan. Your inferiority complex is the reason indian coolies, Arabs took your ancestors in numbers without resistance, you brown piece of shit.

        Even a naked luakjieng is allowed to have dreams. The best you can dream of is a thousand cows, a V8 LandCruiser and a handful of nyanjienges with countless mini jienges running around. Oyol, mining, modern life is strange to jienges. It’s like giving a taliban thousand swine to take care of.

          You are a liar and coward. Which one is stinky? Luak with cows or a very tiny hut with monkeys poop? Very dirty people. It’s not our problem to be born short, ugly, stupid, gull and coward. Country is under controlled.
