In a significant step towards sustainable facility management, Lebanon’s public schools are set to undergo a transformation with the integration of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions. The initiative, known as the Sustainable Facility Management at Public Schools in Lebanon (SUFA) project, is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) under the education portfolio of GIZ Lebanon.
Under this project, the Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC) is spearheading the implementation of various solutions aimed at harnessing renewable energy and improving energy efficiency in public schools. To facilitate the progress of the project, the LCEC has recently announced a Request for Proposal (RFP) inviting contractors to participate in the procurement and installation of twenty-one (21) renewable energy and energy efficiency (REEE) projects.
The objective of the RFP is to select capable contractors who will be responsible for executing the installation of renewable energy systems in the identified public schools. These projects will pave the way for the utilization of solar power, wind energy, and other sustainable energy sources, ensuring a greener and more eco-friendly environment within the school premises.
Interested parties have until the 2nd of June at 3:00 p.m. to submit their proposals to the LCEC offices. The selection process will be rigorous, with the LCEC evaluating each proposal based on its technical capabilities, expertise, and adherence to project requirements. The chosen contractors will play a vital role in bringing the renewable energy projects to fruition and driving positive change in Lebanon’s public school infrastructure.
