Muscat - 

The Authority for Electricity Regulation (AER) has issued a request for proposal tender to appoint an experienced technical advisor to provide input to the authority’s planning, execution and technical/financial modelling of Sahim 2 rooftop PV initiative.

AER has identified areas of expertise expected from well qualified technical advisors for provision of services and advice for renewable energy projects and specifically privately funded domestic PV rooftop schemes, a press release said.

Eng Hilal al Ghaithi, manager of Sahim Renewable Energy Initiative, said that Sahim 2 aims to drive the wide-scale deployment of small PV systems at residential premises in Oman. “The technical advisor will be responsible for supporting each project phase by providing recommendations on residential rooftop PV technologies, components and manufacturers compatible with the outline designs and models of expected output, performance characteristics and costs of outline design PV systems.”

The Sahim initiative was launched in 2017 with the objectives of promoting eco-friendly lifestyles, and creating a greener future for generations by the deployment of small-scale grid connected PV installations.
