ECREEE is planning to implement a web-based GIS hydropower resource mapping, to facilitate the identification of attractive sites for hydropower generation in the ECOWAS Region. It is part of the ECOWAS Small Scale Hydro Power Program (SSHP) which aims to contribute towards establishing an enabling environment for small-scale hydro power investments and markets 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.
