ECOWREX

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.
