9th Edition of the West African Clean Energy and Environment Trade Fair and Conference 2021

Since its inception in 2012, the West African Clean Energy & Environment Trade Fair & Conference has developed into the most relevant renewable energy and environment trade fair in West Africa. Over the years, the event has evolved into the subregion’s leading event focusing on clean energy, circular economy, and water topics. It has attracted leading inventors, service providers, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors, investors and industry experts and served as a gateway for these stakeholders to access West African markets.

In 2020 eWACEE took place over a period of one month, starting September 1st, 2020. This allowed for the participation of a wider range of people from around the world.

The theme for eWACEE’20 was “The Business of Sustainability” and the virtual event featured decentralized, synchronous and asynchronous events, competitions, virtual exhibitions and discussion forums. These eWACEE’20 events would take place using a combination of custom-built website with plug-ins and links to open-source virtual meeting and conference platforms.

In the past WACEE has sparked important policy discussions around its three main topics CLEAN ENERGY, WATER, and CIRCULAR ECONOMY and has served as a launchpad for startups providing innovative solutions to tackle challenges across the subregion. It has also served as a point of entry for more established players in these sectors to provide their products and solutions to the region’s markets.

We are very excited about this new format and look forward to having you join the unforgettable virtual WACEE’20 experience.
