Event Date:Thursday, 21 September, 2023 to Friday, 22 September, 2023
To harness the potential of green hydrogen in the ECOWAS region, the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE), in collaboration with the West African Science Service Centre for Climate and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL), developed the ECOWAS Green Hydrogen Policy and Strategic Framework, which was adopted by the ECOWAS Council of Ministers in July 2023, in Bissau, Guinea Bissau.
To ensure that the policy objectives are achieved through translation into concrete actions at regional and national levels, ECREEE is currently working with stakeholders to develop a Regional Strategy and Action Plans for the implementation of the Green Hydrogen Policy and Strategic Framework.
It is in light of this background that ECREEE and its partners are organizing a regional workshop to validate the draft ECOWAS Green Hydrogen Regional Strategy and Action Plans (2023-2030 & 2031-2050), to be held in Accra, Ghana, on September 21 and 22, 2023.
The workshop will bring together representatives from ECOWAS member states, the ECOWAS Energy Directorate, ECOWAS Specialized Energy Agencies (ECREEE, ERERA, WAPP, WAGP), as well as representatives from BMBF, WASCAL and other partners.
