Factor Energy presents the ECOWAS regional training workshop on the regulatory framework for clean energy mini-grids

18 July 2017 | Mitigation

On July 17, 18 and 19, Hugo Lucas, Head of Factor Energy, will be in Abuja, Nigeria, presenting the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) regional training workshop on improvement of policy and regulatory framework for clean energy mini-grids and on the renewable energy tariff toolbox.

The workshop is organized together with the ECOWAS Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) and the Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Program (RECP).

The ECOWAS region brings together 15 countries with a population of more than 335 million, representing about a third of the total population of sub-Saharan Africa.

The clean energy mini- grid sector in this region has not grown at a pace necessary to meet the goals of the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All Initiative (SE4ALL) on universal access to modern energy sources. Often the lack of funding available is mentioned as the main obstacle to the growth of the sector.

The objective of the workshop is to provide support to ECOWAS member states through capacity building with the objective of empowering Ministries, regulators and other key stakeholders within the ECOWAS Member states to apply adequate approaches and methodologies for improving the policy and regulatory framework for CEMG in their countries.

 

Factor Energy helps both public and private clients in Algeria, Senegal, Mali, Madagascar and Zambia in the design and implementation of regulatory frameworks to advance the energy transition, and developing new business models.
