OBSERVATÓRIO PARA AS ENERGIAS RENOVÁVEIS E EFICIÊNCIA ENERGÉTICA DA CEDEAO

O conhecimento preciso sobre os recursos existentes e planeados constitui um elemento vital para o planeamento estratégico e o desenvolvimento. A indisponibilidade de informações fiáveis ​​e atualizadas no domínio da energia representa um grande constrangimento para os decisores políticos, investidores e promotores de projetos no setor energético da CEDEAO. Para os investidores e outras partes interessadas é, frequentemente, difícil identificar os parceiros de cooperação, devido à ausência de plataformas especializadas para o intercâmbio de informações e de experiências. Perante esta situação, perdem-se diversas oportunidades no que diz respeito ao desenvolvimento de sistemas energéticos sustentáveis. O ECOWREX liga pessoas e ideias, construindo assim parcerias mais sólidas entre os principais intervenientes, reforçadas pela partilha de experiências e de informação de elevada qualidade com o objetivo de promover uma sociedade mais limpa e mais desenvolvida.

Introduction Webinar to the ECOWREX Spatial Data Infrastructure on 10th August - in French

Introduction Webinar to the ECOWREX Spatial Data Infrastructure on 10th August - in French

The ECOWREX Spatial Data Infrastructure is the section on the ECOWAS Observatory for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECOWREX) that contains spatial data and applications for sustainable energy planning and data sharing. Released in 2016 by ECREEE, the ECOWREX SDI offers ECOWREX users a platform to explore, visualize, extract, download and share geospatial information. This 60 minutes webinar will be conducted in French and will introduce the ECOWREX SDI and its contents to potential stakeholders in charge of energy planning in ECOWAS member states.

Inaugurated in Senegal the largest solar PV plant in West Africa

Inaugurated in Senegal the largest solar PV plant in West Africa

The Santhiou Mékhé solar PV plant in the community of Thies in Senegal was inagurated on 29th June 2017 being at the moment the largest solar PV plant in West Africa, with 30MW of installed capacity. After the inauguration of the Senergy 2 solar plant (20 MW) and the Malicounda PV plant (22 MW) in October and November 2016, this plant represents the third grid-connected PV plant commisioned in the ECOWAS member state in less than one year. With a cost of 41 millions of €, the plant is supposed to supply electricity to 200,000 households of the country and add a significant bit to guide Senegal to achieve 20% of electricity production through the use of renewable energies by end of 2017.

World Bank Interactive Applications to support energy planning and monitoring and evaluation

World Bank Applications to support energy planning and monitoring and evaluation

The World Bank recently released the ENERGYDATA.INFO platform with the aim of making open data and analytics on the energy sector increasingly available. Among different sections and datasets, the platform has a specific entry with interactive applications to support energy plannig, rural elecrification and monitoring and evaluation activities. Users have access to different tools, among which it could be highlighted under our special focus in West Africa: the Africa Electricity Grid Explorer, the Off-grid Market Opportunities application, the Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy, the Global Tracking Framework application, Electrification Paths and Climatescope.
