VIEDA announces selection for the energy sector analysis consultant

ST CROIX, USVI – In June of 2021, the Virgin Islands Economic Development Authority (VIEDA) released RFP No. 2021-004-USVIEDA for an Energy Sector Analysis Consultant. The goal of the Energy Sector Analysis is to identify investment opportunities in existing and potential renewable energy projects within the Territory to promote to investors.

On August 5, 2021, an evaluation committee of internal and external members thoroughly reviewed and scored the proposals. Earlier today, the VIEDA board of directors gave the approval to begin negotiations of a contract with the selected bidder, Siemens Power Technologies International.

“Our economic prosperity is directly tied to the US Virgin Islands ability to provide reliable, affordable, and sustainable sources of energy to our residents. The Energy Sector Analysis will move forward the Vision 2040 plan to drive investment in renewable energy sources and green technology investment to build resilient infrastructure,” said VIEDA’s chief executive officer Wayne Biggs, Jr.

The Territory’s Vision 2040 aspirational renewable energy goal aspires for seventy-five percent (75%) of energy generation to come from renewable sources by 2040.

The full RFP can be viewed on VIEDA website at https://www.usvieda.org/about-usvieda/rfp.

Vision 2040: Our Community. Our Economy. Our Future – A Vision of Prosperity for All. The full USVI 20-year economic development plan can be accessed at www.usvi2040.com/theplan.
