Awareness about the need of growing economies and markets for stable and affordable power supply as well as adequate and enforced legislation to protect the environment is high in West Africa. The Ghana Ministry of Energy launched an Energy Sector Strategy and Development Plan in 2010 which establishes goals to increase generation capacity from 2,000 MW to 5,000 MW by 2015, to achieve universal access by extending electricity to all households by 2020 and to increase the renewable energy supply in the national energy mix to 10% by 2020.

The West African Clean Energy & Environment Exhibition & Conference (WACEE) aims at providing a platform for power providers, technology suppliers, investors, industry experts as well as political and economic decision-makers to ensure sustainable development of West Africa’s energy and environmental ecosystem.

Since its inception in 2012, WACEE continues to be the most relevant renewable energy and environment trade fair in West Africa. The exhibition is West Africa’s best opportunity to showcase your products and innovations to an international business clientele, raise awareness of your company and projects, as well as expand your business network.

The conference serves as an effective tool to ensure that discussions around sustainable energy supply and environment stay relevant and at the forefront of the region’s development agenda.

Running concurrently at WACEE is German Solar Training Week workshop, an initiative by the “energy solutions – Made in Germany”. The workshop serves as a great opportunity for participants to acquire knowledge in German solar technology from top German solar firms and to network with other local solar companies.

  “This trade fair is the ideal platform to share our plans for achieving our ambitious goals. The Ministry of Energy therefore gladly supports the event and its exhibitors.”
