Ecowas electrification project forum opens today

An ECOWAS Regional off-Grid Electrification Project (ROGEP) forum will take place today at the Kairaba Beach Hotel.

The workshop is jointly organized by the ECOWAS Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) and the Ministry of Energy of The Gambia.

It will seek to create awareness and share information on ROGEP with national stakeholders. ROGEP was designed by the World Bank and ECREEE to increase access to sustainable electricity services in the ECOWAS region especially for households, commercial enterprises and public facilities.

According to experts, two national workshops will be held in each ECOWAS member country including four Sahel countries. The first workshop will set the tone for the implementation of the preparatory phase of ROGEP, and the second one to be held next year will highlight the results of the preparatory phase of the ROGEP and discuss the way forward.
