Expression of Interest INVEST-002: Vietnam Transaction Assistance and Catalytic Fund
INVEST and USAID seek project concepts from clean energy developers in the Vietnamese power sector, based in the US and in the Southeast Asian region, in order to shortlist clean energy projects to receive technical assistance from USAID.
Through this Expression of Interest (EOI), INVEST and USAID seek project concepts from clean energy developers in the Vietnamese power sector, based in the US and in the Southeast Asian region, in order to shortlist clean energy projects to receive technical assistance from USAID. INVEST will subcontract customized services on behalf of the developer and/or investor for the renewable energy project(s) presented in their EOI response. The Vietnam INVEST intervention will offset some of the regulatory risks and transaction costs facing private sector actors who wish to invest in the energy sector. Examples of assistance to be provided may include commissioning discrete activities such as pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, legal analyses/risk assessments, and environmental analyses, among others, through a subcontract fund. INVEST ultimately aims to identify potential partners in the clean energy space that can best leverage USAID resources to catalyze investment for renewable or clean energy projects in Vietnam.
Potential and interested partners are requested to submit an Expression of Interest (i.e. concept note) detailing the proposed renewable energy projects for which they seek support and their ideas for assistance from USAID/Vietnam. With these concept notes, USAID/Vietnam and the INVEST project will shortlist proposals for support. USAID/Vietnam and INVEST will then work with the successful respondents to develop scopes of work that detail the discrete tasks/services to be subcontracted by INVEST with service providers on the partner’s behalf.
