The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) has launched a publication on the study of Novel Bioenergy Crop Potential in the ECOWAS Region. The publication was developed under the project titled "Regional potential assessment of novel bioenergy crops in fifteen ECOWAS countries", in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the International Industrial Biotechnology Network (IIBN) and QUINVITA. The project is based on the need to make an overall assessment of a series of novel potential bioenergy crops which can or could be grown and processed in the ECOWAS region.
ECOWAS OBSERVATORY FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Accurate knowledge on existing and planned resources are vital for strategic planning and development. The non-availability of reliable and updated energy information poses a major constraint for policy makers, investors and project developers in the ECOWAS energy sector. For investors and other stakeholders, it is difficult to identify cooperation partners due to the absence of specialised platforms for exchange of information and experiences. Given this situation, significant opportunities are lost for a sustainable energy development. The ECOWREX connects people and ideas, building powerful partnerships with the latest technologies to provide up to date, timely and quality information for powering a cleaner and developed energy sector.
