The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) and the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) are partnering on the establishment of the Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency for Central Africa (CEREEAC) as part of the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres (GN-SEC).
UNIDO and ECCAS are implementing a comprehensive consultative preparatory process, which will determine the added value, feasibility as well as the technical and institutional design of the centre. The region includes Angola, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Rwanda and Sao Tome and Principe.
The CEREEAC process includes the preparation of a needs and feasibility assessment, a project document on the first operational phase, as well as broad stakeholder consultations. The project document will be sent for consideration by the ECCAS Energy Ministers and Heads of State. ECREEE and other GN-SEC centres will contribute with lessons learned.
Further information on the process will be published regularly on the following project website. Currently, broad stakeholder consultations are undertaken on local and international level. We encourage interested partners to submit the available assessment questionnaire .
