Berater Projektentwicklungsprogramm Erneuerbare Energien Subsahara Afrika, Dar es Salaam



Als Bundesunternehmen unterstützt die GIZ die Bundesregierung dabei, ihre Ziele in der internationalen Zusammenarbeit für nachhaltige Entwicklung zu erreichen.Wir suchen für den Standort Tansania/Dar es Salaam eine/nJOB-ID: 18866

Tätigkeitsbereich
Im Rahmen der Exportinitiative Erneuerbare Energien des Bundesministeriums für Wirtschaft und Technologie (BMWi) führt die GIZ das Projektentwicklungsprogramm (PEP) Subsahara-Afrika durch. Das PEP Subsahara-Afrika unterstützt deutsche Unternehmen bei ihrem Markteintritt und/oder bei der Projektentwicklung und Projektumsetzung für Erneuerbare Energien und Energieeffizienz in Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländern. Die Exportinitiative wird in Kooperation mit den deutschen Auslandshandelskammern (AHKs), der Deutschen Energie-Agentur (dena) und Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) durchgeführt. In den Zielmärkten ist das Interesse an deutscher Spitzentechnologie groß, trotzdem ist das deutsche privatwirtschaftliche Engagement in der Region bisher gering: Unklarheit über Rahmenbedingungen, Marktsituation, Fördermöglichkeiten oder Vertragsrecht sowie mangelnde technische und betriebswirtschaftliche Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten potentieller Kooperationspartner vor Ort erschweren den Marktzugang. An diesem Punkt setzen die Exportinitiative und das PEP an. Bewährte Maßnahmen der Exportinitiative, etwa Informations- und marktspezifische Fachveranstaltungen in Deutschland sowie die Geschäftsreisen der Auslandshandelskammern sind eine zentrale Säule. Darauf aufbauend berät die GIZ die Zielländer, um die Rahmenbedingungen für Erneuerbare Energien und Energieeffizienz zu verbessern und die Bewusstseinsbildung für innovative Lösungen zu unterstützen. AHKs, GTAI und die GIZ setzen dies im Auftrag des BMWi gemeinsam um. Dabei bringen AHKs und GTAI ihre bewährte Expertise in der Außenwirtschaftsförderung und starke Netzwerke in die Privatwirtschaft ein. Die GIZ stellt ihre Energieexpertise und Zugänge zu politischen Entscheidungsträgern bereit. Damit können Erfahrungen und Netzwerke von Außenwirtschaftsförderung und Entwicklungszusammenarbeit gebündelt und für die Förderung deutscher Unternehmen bei der Markterschließung in Wert gesetzt werden.
Im Rahmen des PEP Subsahara Afrika sind Kenia, Tansania, Mosambik und Ghana die für die Projektlaufzeit fokussierten Zielmärkte. Technologieschwerpunkte sind netzgekoppelte Photovoltaikanlagen, PV-Diesel Hybridsysteme, Mini-Grids sowie Energie aus Biomasse und Biogas.
Das Gesamtvorhaben wird gesteuert vom PEP Team Berlin. Die länderspezifischen PEP Maßnahmen werden in Tansania und den anderen PEP Zielmärkten mit Unterstützung des Teams aus Berlin sowie der Energiekollegen/-innen vor Ort konzipiert und durchgeführt.
Ihre Aufgaben
Als Berater/-in sind Sie verantwortlich für die Entwicklung von Maßnahmen zur Unterstützung deutscher Unternehmen beim Markteintritt in Kenia, Tansania, Mosambik und perspektivisch weiteren ostafrikanischen Staaten.

Ein weiterer wichtiger Bestandteil Ihrer Arbeit ist die Unterstützung bei der Entwicklung innovativer Geschäftsmodelle. Sie arbeiten sehr eng mit dem PEP-Team in Berlin sowie mit den bilateralen Energievorhaben in den Ländern vor Ort zusammen und stimmen die Konzeption und Umsetzung der Aktivitäten kontinuierlich miteinander ab.Im Einzelnen umfasst Ihre Aufgabe:

Konzeption und Durchführung von Beratungsmaßnahmen für politische Entscheidungsträger und lokale Marktakteure hinsichtlich der Implementierung von Strategien für die Förderung Erneuerbarer Energien (insbesondere PV und Biomasse/Biogas) sowie dem Abbau von Marktbarrieren (bspw. Abbau administrativer Marktbarrieren, Netzintegration Erneuerbarer Energien, Net-Metering)
Konzeption und Durchführung von Fachveranstaltungen und Capacity Development-Maßnahmen zu ausgewählten Technologie- und Themenschwerpunkten für lokale Marktakteure und Entscheidungsträger unter Beteiligung deutscher Unternehmen
Unterstützung in der Durchführung von AHK-Geschäftsreisen (konzeptionelle Vorbereitung der Fachveranstaltung, Vorbereitung von Projektbesuchen)

Logistische und fachliche Vorbereitung sowie Betreuung von Messe- und Konferenzbeteiligungen in der Region
Evaluierung der Maßnahmen und Berichterstattung an den Auftraggeber

Ihr Profil
Sie verfügen über ein abgeschlossenes Hochschulstudium im Bereich Ingenieurs-, Wirtschafts- oder Politikwissenschaften und haben bereits einige Jahre Arbeitserfahrung im Bereich Erneuerbare Energien gesammelt.Sie haben einen guten Überblick über die verschiedenen technologischen Energieversorgungsoptionen und verstehen deren grundlegende Geschäftsmodelle sowie wirtschaftliche Rahmenbedingungen. Darüber hinaus sind Sie vertraut mit verschiedenen politischen Ansätzen zur Förderung Erneuerbarer Energien.
