Regional Energy Co-operation Summit | 9-11 October 2019 | Accra, Ghana

The Regional Energy Co-operation Summit is an annual investors’ meeting focused on cross-border energy infrastructure and the financing of projects in West Africa. The next edition of the Summit will take place in Accra in October 2019. As Ghana leads the way for crossborder energy trade, this high-level regional Summit will not only be the platform to showcase power, trade and infrastructure investment opportunities, but will also engage decision makers from ECOWAS public and private sectors to explore how project bankability can be increased.
