The Regional Energy Co-operation Summit is an annual investors’ meeting focused on energy, infrastructure and the financing of energy projects. The Summit will address cross-border co-operation and regional integration, unlocking West Africa’s investments in energy and infrastructure to support industrialisation. Cross-border co-operation in West Africa is crucial to developing mechanisms that facilitate trade and power exchange among States.
 
 
Following on from the successful Powering Africa: Ghana meeting in Accra last year, EnergyNet returns to West Africa to host this regional gathering to shine a spotlight on the opportunities for collaboration between West African countries.
 
Once again we will collaborate with the West Africa Power Pool (WAPP), the Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS), the ECOWAS Regional Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERERA) and the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE).

The Regional Energy Co-operation Summit will be held in West Africa each year, with the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire being the host country for 2017.

It is also home to the headquarters of the African Development Bank (AfDB), in line with the theme of the forum ‘unleashing international capital to drive forward West Africa’s regional integration and universal energy access’.

Who Will Attend?

Ana Hajduka
Ana Hajduka
Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Africa GreenCo

Ana is a Founder & CEO of Africa GreenCo (Africa Green Regional Energy: Efficient, New and Creditworthy Offtaker).  Africa Greenco calls for the set-up of a public-private partnership in the form of an independent, regional, renewable energy offtaker.  Africa GreenCo would streamline development, mitigate offtake and credit risk and catalyse private sector finance for renewable energy development.  Africa GreenCo aims to increase private sector investment in energy generation in sub-Saharan Africa by mitigating the credit risks associated with the current lack of creditworthy offtakers.  Current weak financial position of utilities and limited choice of an alternate buyer in case of utility default deters private capital.  An intermediary aggregator between buyers and sellers can help attract sustainable investments in the power sector on the strength of a multi-buyer model. Its role as a financially sustainable intermediary offtaker and power trading company can also stimulate regional electricity trading and facilitate more efficient use of available and new resources by optimising them on a regional basis.


Africa GreenCo as a concept was included in the recommendations section of the SE4All’s Finance Committee Report and is currently funded by The Rockefeller Foundation.
