About ECSES

Supporting The Development of Renewable
Energy and Energy Efficiency Markets in ECOWAS

The ECOWAS Certification Body (RCB) for Sustainable Energy Skills is a West Africa's foremost regional certification body established by all ECOWAS countries with the support of IRENA, GIZ and other partners to promote quality assurance at all levels through a regional certification scheme known as the ECOWAS Certification of Sustainable Energy Skills (ECSES) scheme. The certification of skills is considered essential for the success of the RE and EE market and future projects in the West African countries because certification gives the reassurance that technicians and professionals have the competencies and capacities required to complete a job safely and effectively. More specifically, certification is a way to promote the quality and safety of RE and EE systems.
