Contract Description:

The NWEAB seeks to appoint a supplier that can deliver a report that delivers the scope of works below. The NWEAB is looking for someone with expertise and previous experience in assessing the feasibility of Multi-Vector Energy Systems. The supplier should have a proven track record in this field and should be able to provide examples of other successful Multi-Vector Energy System projects they have been involved in. Scope of works: 1. Review of existing work undertaken to date • Review and summarise the work undertaken to date for YnNi Llŷn including a summary of all recommendations and an explanation why they have not progressed (3 studies have been completed to date and included as appendices; ‘Community Energy Survey’, ‘a high-level review of the YnNi Llŷn community energy initiative’ and ‘Smarter Energy Feasibility Study’). • A summary of existing and proposed assets that could form part of a multi-vector energy system. To include high energy users and their current energy demand. • A summary of similar projects/case studies underway elsewhere that could be replicated and/or learned from. • A list of current stakeholders supporting current activities. 2. Case for change and Options for energy solutions Making the case for change… • Determine spending objectives, existing arrangements and business needs (workshop with client is recommended) Exploring the preferred way forward… • With the spending objectives in mind, provide a long list of potential options of suitable multi-vector energy systems that could create a pathway to net zero, provide security of energy supply and reduced fuel poverty in Pen Llŷn. Include a PESTEL and SWOT analysis of the potential options. • From the long list, provide a short list of technically feasible and financially viable solutions that are recommended for more detailed assessment backed up with the rationale why these options are being proposed. • Define optimum multi-vector energy system geographical boundary based on assets and energy demand. • Short list of options to include indicative order of deployment and indicative costs. 3. Benefits • Explain how the short list of potential options would deliver against NWEAB’s desired benefits (as listed below) for the Pen Llŷn.
