After a successful, first edition of the ECOWAS Sustainable Energy Forum (ESEF), the Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, (ECREEE), is organising ESEF 2018, in Dakar from 13-15 November at the Radisson Blu. The overall objective of ESEF is to shape the landscape for a regional market for renewable energy and energy efficiency by ensuring innovative partnerships, market-friendly policies, forward-thinking financing and an inclusive ecosystem for increase development of the energy sector in the ECOWAS region. This three-day, multi-stakeholder forum is designed to be the premier event in West Africa for sharing best practices, promoting groundbreaking solutions (technical, technological and financial) in order to meet the region’s ambitious renewable energy and energy efficiency targets.  

ESEF 2018 will bring together over 200 participants from governments, project developers, financial sector such as development and commercial banks, investment funds, EPCs, etc. The event is designed in a way that allows plenty of networking opportunities. Customised meetings will be set-up for sponsors looking for specific actors.

By popular demand, this year, we are adding a large exhibition/fair to the activities of the Forum in order to allow various stakeholders especially from the private sector to showcase their products, services and know-how.
