Job Description

Energy sector summary
SNV Tanzania’s current Energy Programme focuses largely on Solar, Improved Cookstoves and Biogas in rural areas using market-based solutions and Results Based Finance to ensure sustainable change. This new programme - Renewable Energy Service & Products as an Opportunity in National and Displaced (RESPOND) Markets - will move the Solar RBF and ICS products into a new operational market that includes large displaced populations as well as host populations. The current Energy sector portfolio in Tanzania is one of SNV’s largest and we are looking to expand over the next five years including a move into Urban Energy solutions.
Programme Summary
As a result of civil unrest in Burundi, since mid-April 2015 an estimated 250,000 refugees have arrived in Tanzania - in addition to 65,000 long-term hosted asylum seekers. An estimated 2.1 million persons reside in Kigoma Region of whom more than 850,000 Tanzanian nationals reside in local districts hosting the refugee camps. The significant increase in refugee population, over a relatively short space of time, into a comparatively limited space has created intense environmental impacts driven largely by energy consumption needs. An estimated one million or more trees have been cut for fuel and shelters in Kigoma as a result of the recent refugee influx.
The project’s main objective is to improve the use of sustainable energy by refugees and surrounding communities in the Kigoma region in Northwest Tanzania. This will further contribute to the prevention or reduction of resource conflicts between the local population of Kasulu and Kibondo districts and refugees in the Nyarugusu and Nduta camps. Improving access to quality cooking and solar energy options to these communities reduces the extremely high pressure on the limited firewood resources and contributes to improving the living conditions these persons. Measures of the project will be implemented in the following three Activity Areas of:
1. Distribution and Promotion of Improved Stoves & Cooking Practices
Technical assistance in design, production and distribution of local improved cookstoves towards integration of biomass fuels and alternatives (briquettes, LPG)
2. Access to High-Quality Solar Energy Products & Services
Stimulation of private sector investment to sustained market presence in Kigoma for IFC-Lighting Africa certified solar products and services
3. Alternative Reforestation Practices Alleviating Reliance on Traditional Biomass
Revitalization and introduction to local forestry measures in localized fuelwood production practices including agro-forestry wood lots linked to community reforestation financing
The programme will adapt and extend SNV & EnDev Tanzania approaches and expertise in cooking energy, solar technologies and forestry to engender Renewable Energy Service & Products as an Opportunity in National and Displaced (RESPOND) Markets of Kigoma Region. A humanitarian market-based approach will be employed to improve overall livelihood, enterprise development and employment potentials responsive to the unique needs of each community while working closely together with international and local companies.
