ECREEE to run plug and play solar system workshop

The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE), is organising a regional validation workshop in Senegal this week for the Draft Standards for Electrodomestic Appliances and Regional Standard for Plug and Play Solar Home Systems Kits.

This forms part of its Regional Off-Grid Electrification Project (ROGEP) funded by World Bank and Clean Technology Funds, and the initiative, ‘Improving Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Sector Governance in West Africa (AGoSEREE-AO)’ funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

It is of crucial importance that consumers have confidence in the products and have access to important information they can rely on to decide whether to invest in solar products and electrical appliances.
