The Regional Energy Co-operation Summit will provide a platform for investor insights on the potential for regional collaboration within West Africa’s power sector. The agenda will focus on the country's electricity landscape following the division of the energy and power ministries, the critical issues facing the government and investors, and the future project pipeline which is rapidly growing under the leadership of the Minister for Power.
Energy, infrastructure and finance will form the cornerstones of the discussions. Cross-border cooperation in West Africa is crucial to develop mechanisms that facilitate trade and power exchange among States. Sessions will address cross-border co-operation and regional integration, unlocking West Africa’s investments in energy and infrastructure to support industrialisation.
This meeting has the full support of the Ministry of Power of the Republic of Ghana, GRIDCo, Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), and the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) as well as the West African Power Pool (WAPP) and ECOWAS Regional Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERERA).
