The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and RES4Africa Foundation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to increase cooperation through joint initiatives and activities to support sustainable development for resilient economies and energy systems in Africa.
Six months ago RES4Africa was also among the founding organisations that launched the GWEC Africa Task Force that, promoting the development of wind and renewables in Africa, aims to end energy poverty and dependence on fossil fuels. This MoU paves the way for cooperation on various kinds of initiatives focusing on renewable energy and climate change in Africa, and in particular on training programs (courses, seminars, summer schools), thematic publications (technical studies, analyses, reports) and outreach activities (conferences, events, workshops). GWEC and RES4Africa have already worked together on GWEC’s new Africa Wind Energy Handbook.
