ECOWAS Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Status Report

ECOWAS Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Status Report

REN21 in cooperation with the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) has just released a new report: The ECOWAS Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Status Report. The report provides a regional perspective on the renewable energy and energy efficiency market and industry development in West Africa. It enables policymakers, industry, investors and civil society to make informed decisions with regards to the diffusion of renewable energy. The 92-page report covers recent developments, current status, and key trends; by design, it does not provide analysis or forecast.

The production of the ECOWAS Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Status Report was supported by ECOWAS, UNIDO under the GEF Strategic Program for West Africa, The Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID) and the Austrian Development Agency. (ADA). Over 50 experts and reviewers from across the ECOWAS region and elsewhere contributed to the report’s content.

Sub-Saharan Africa' s energy sector can be improved to unlock a better life for its citizens.  This report, which has been produced and published by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in October 2014, describes one of the most poorly understood parts of the global energy system, offers an authoritative study of its future prospects - broken down by fuel, sector and sub-region - and shows how investment in the sub-Saharan energy sector can stimulate rapid economic and social development across the region.

Biomass Waste-to-Energy Toolkit for Development Practitioners

Biomass Waste-to-Energy Toolkit for Development Practitioners

This document presents a toolkit that has been developed by SNVs REDD+ Energy and Agriculture Programme (REAP). With the purpose of supporting development practicioners this toolkit does not promote a one size fits all approach. But instead it provides practitioners a waste to energy project with a focus on the use of agricultural and forestry waste for the generation of electricity, by using technologies including combustion, gasification and anaerobic digestion.

The document has been developed under the REDD+ Program, and published by the SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, Energy research Centre of the Netherlands.

Terms of Reference - Consultancy for the development of the ECOWAS Policy for Gender Mainstreaming in Energy Access

The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE), in a bid to develop a regional policy for Gender Mainstreaming in Energy Access, is calling for proposals from a team of experts with a proven track record of engaging in strategic planning activities in Gender and Energy and consulting experiences in the public and private sectors.

Call for Proposals: Web-based GIS Hydropower Resource Mapping for ECOWAS Countries

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.

ECOWREX GIS user experience

As part of the ECOWREX Geographic Information System Improvement, a survey has been developed to assess users needs and experience. This survey was developed by the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) in collaboration with the University of Geneva, under the EU funded project ‘ECOWREX II’ (grant n° FED/2013/330-248).  

Your feedback is very important. Kindly take some few minutes to participate in the survey, by clicking in the following link.(http://www.unige.ch/outils/limesurvey2/index.php/469711/)
