Gambia Public/Private Sector players brainstorm on reliable and affordable energy services

Public and private sector operators from different institutions in The Gambia on 7th September completed a five-day training that discussed issues relating to sustainable development of the Ecowas Renewable Energy Strategy in West Africa.

The training, organised by the Ministry of Energy in collaboration with the University of The Gambia, focused on developing strategies for effective and sustainable use of the Ecowas Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREE) in The Gambia and other Ecowas member states.

The regional initiative has been undertaken to improve access to a more modern, reliable and affordable energy services, and energy security, among others.

The institutional stakeholders also looked at issues relating to reduction of negative energy related to externalities, such as local pollution, and Green House Gas emissions through dissemination of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RE&EE) technologies and services.

Mama Nyang, deputy permanent secretary at the Ministry of Energy, said an effective and efficient utilisation of energy can have significant bearing on economies of Ecowas member states.

He however bemoaned “the untapped or underutilised” renewable energy resources in Ecowas member states, while calling on project developers and investors to assess the technical and financial feasibility of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects within the sub-region.

Dr Abubacarr Senghore, Dean of the Law Faculty at the University of The Gambia, urged those who took part in the training to come up with tangible solutions meant for effective implementation of the Ecowas Renewable Energy Strategy in West Africa and beyond.
