Regional Workshop on the ECOWAS Solar Energy Initiative (ESEI)

18 to 21 October 2010, Dakar, Senegal


The ECOWAS Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) has the pleasure to you inform that the first Regional Workshop on the ECOWAS Solar Energy Initiative (ESEI)  is scheduled to take place in Dakar, Senegal, from 18 to 21 October 2010. It will seek to bring together regional and international experts to define a regional strategy for large-scale solar energy deployment across West Africa. The strategy will be executed under the guidance of ECREEE in cooperation with the ECOWAS Member States.

As an initial step an operational solar energy road map will be adopted in the workshop. The road map will take advantage of the full menu of feasible solar energy technology options. This includes centralized and decentralized systems for electricity generation, heating and cooling services. The potential of large-scale applications to meet the rapidly growing energy demand of urban areas as well as small-scale installations to support productive uses in rural and peri-urban areas will be considered. The final outcome of this roadmap is to carry out the provision of sustainable energy services through implemented solar energy programs and projects.

The registration is closed. For further questions please contact the ECREEE conference secretariat at: +221/773190001 (English) or +221/77455 2139 (French) or +221/772050675 (Portuguese)
