ECOWAS CENTRE FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY (ECREEE)
RELAUNCH: CONSULTANCY TO CONDUCT STUDIES ON THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF GREEN HYDROGEN RELATIVE TO THE WEST AFRICAN COOKING ALLIANCE AND ECOWAS RENEWABLE ENERGY FACILITY
The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) was established in response to the recommendation of the ECOWAS/UEMOA White Paper on access to energy services in rural and peri-urban areas issued in 2006. The specific objective of ECREEE is also to create favorable framework conditions for regional RE&EE markets by supporting activities directed to mitigate existing technology financial, economic, business, legal, policy, institutional, knowledge and capacity related barriers.
In October 2020, ECREEE signed a memorandum of understanding with WASCAL as a co-implementing partner of the H2 Atlas project. The main aim of this project is to assess the potential of green hydrogen production in Africa and how this can support sustainable development in the continent. The project will also explore the possibility of exporting green hydrogen from Africa taking into consideration all such factors as related logistic, political stability, environment and available infrastructure.
In this context, ECREEE, in collaboration with WASCAL, is launching a Request for Proposal (RfP) seeking for the services of a consultant to explore the potential benefits of Green Hydrogen relative to the mini-grid program (EREF) as well as the clean cooking alliance.
