The ECOWAS regional report, jointly published by REN21 and ECREEE was launched in Bonn, Germany at the REN21 Renewable Academy. The report details ECOWAS Member states’ commitment to developing renewable energy and energy efficiency by addressing current energy sector challenges while simultaneously building a resilient energy system. Sustained investment in the region’s renewables sector however is desperately needed. The report is for policymakers, industry, investors and civil society to make informed decisions with regards to the diffusion of renewable energy. The 92-page report covers recent developments, current status, and key trends; by design, it does not provide analysis or forecast. It is available in English, French, and Portuguese.
