We are looking for a Junior Expert Digital surveying ad renewable energy in Mozambique:

1. The collaboration between the Government of Mozambique and Belgium in the domain of renewable energy cover a project (RERD2) for development of solar and hydro off-grid systems in partnership with the National Energy Fund (FUNAE) and a capacity strengthening project (CB-MIREME) of the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy (MIREME). The renewable energy project RERD2 will finance the construction of solar- and mini-hydro mini-grids and explore the most suitable management modes. Both projects RERD2 and CB-MIREME contain capacity building components; at the central level in MIREME, the new energy regulator (ARENE) and FUNAE and in the provinces of Zambezia, Sofala and Manica. Both also emphasize sustainable access to renewable energy for productive uses.

2. A junior is sought to enhance the role of these two Mozambican-Belgian capacity strengthening interventions in FUNAE and MIREME in improving the promotion, planning, monitoring, operation and maintenance of renewable energy systems for productive use and enhanced coordination and information exchange between the provincial energy stakeholders and the central level.

3. Direct support to the Mozambican-Belgian capacity strengthening interventions in the National Energy Fund and the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy. The major focus will be on Zambezia province where the large majority of RERD2 and CB-MIREME investment and attention is concentrated, but will also cover neighboring provincial directorates (DIPREME) in Sofala and Manica. The JE activities, while mostly developed in the province, will also contribute to the central-provincial interface being strengthened through CB MIREME. Direct beneficiaries are the users of energy in the targeted communities and the service delivering staff of the provincial services of the energy fund and the ministry. Implementation of foreseen tasks require direct interaction with the private sector, national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), universities and institutions for technical and vocational education and training.

4. The JE will be based in Quelimane and will be coached by senior staff of the RERD2 and CB-MIREME projects based in Quelimane and Maputo. The JE will need to link up with NGOs, private and public sector and institutions for technical and vocational education and training active in the field of economic development. It is also foreseen that the JE will regularly contribute to training to government and NGO staff, producers and consumers on the promotion, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of renewable energy (RE) systems for productive use in rural areas.

The junior position will contribute to the sustainability of former, ongoing and new investments in renewable energy systems for rural development by improving the M&E and promotion of renewable energy installations in rural areas for productive use. (S)he will develop his/her activities in four strongly synergetic result areas: 1. Monitoring of renewable energy installations and improved management and planning, 2. Promotion of productive use of renewable energy, 3. Protection of systems and people, and 4. Information dissemination, promotion and training.
