Kick off Meeting and Regional Technical training ECOWAS Solar Thermal Energy Training and Demonstration Program - “SOLtrain West Africa”

04/20/2015

As part of the efforts of ECREEE to promote the use of sustainable and renewable energy resources and technologies in West Africa, ECREEE will launch the ECOWAS Solar Thermal Training and Demonstration Program (in short: SOLtrain West Africa) on the 201th of April 2015 at the CERMI, Centre for Renewable Energy and Industrial Maintenance - Praia, Cabo Verde

The ECOWAS Solar Thermal Energy Training and Demonstration Program is one of ECREEEs flagship projects developed ensuing the strong political will of the ECOWAS heads states and government to sustainable energy for all in the region through the adoption of the ECOWAS Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Policies in 2013.

The ECOWAS renewable energy policy set targets for solar thermal energy for water heating in schools, hospitals, buildings, hotels and even for industrial processes . The objective of the program SOLtrain West Africa is thus to make a significant contribution to the switch from a fossil fuel based energy supply to a sustainable energy supply system based on renewable energies, especially on solar thermal.

ECOWAS Hands-On Training: Renewable energy (hybrid) mini-grid systems for rural electrification in West Africa

03/09/2015

The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE), is organizing a Hands-on Training on Renewable Energy (Hybrid) Mini-Grid Systems for Rural Electrification in West Africa, from 09 to 12 March 2015 in Bissau, Guinea Bissau, in collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Government of Guinea Bissau

The training is undertaken in the context of the GEF Project - “Promoting investments into small and medium sized renewable energy technologies in the electricity sector of Guinea Bissau” and the development of a regional renewable energy mini-grid project for the entire ECOWAS region.

The purpose of this initiative is to promote the contribution of renewable energy technologies to the ECREEE regional rural electrification program, enhance the understanding of the different technologies solutions and financial schemes needed for the complete development of the different phases of a renewable energy rural electrification project.

International Conference on Solar Energy in Development Cooperation

11/06/2014

More than 2 billion people in developing countries do not have access to modern energy supplies. The need to create energy economies and energy infrastructures in developing countries, the decentralized energy demand in rural areas and the large solar resource in most of these countries are perfect conditions for implementing new technologies that utilize renewable energy sources. Moreover the increased use of locally available resources can contribute to many countries’ debt-relief efforts as the importation of energy is one of the contributing factors to high level of debts in developing countries. Solar thermal systems, photovoltaics, solar drying and solar cooking can help to build a sustainable energy system in developing countries and with the appropriate implementation provide local jobs.

The Austrian Development Agency in cooperation with AEE-INTEC, BSW Solar and GIZ sponsors an international conference on Solar Energy Technology in Development Cooperation from 06.11.2014 till 07.11.2014 in Frankfurt, Germany.
