About ECSES

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

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 an installation or a job safely and effectively. More specifically, the certification is a way to promote the quality and safety of RE and EE systems. In order to achieve this quality assurance at various levels of the value chain, stakeholders put emphasis on the establishment and enforcement of product standards. However, high-quality products that will enter the region will only provide the desired services if systems are designed, installed and maintained by highly qualified professionals.
