ECREEE is assisting the fifteen ECOWAS Member States in the development, adoption and implementation of national renewable energy and energy efficiency policies and targets, regulatory frameworks, standards (e.g. for appliances, generation equipment and building codes), as well as incentives (e.g. tax exemption, public procurement, portfolio standards) and financial mechanisms (e.g. feed-in tariffs, net metering, investment subsidies). The Centre is focusing on the electricity sector as well as other sectors (e.g. cooking, sustainable biofuels) and deals equally with grid-connected (e.g. IPPs, loss management) and off-grid issues relevant to rural areas (e.g. stand-alone systems, mini-grids).
