Dammipi: "Meeting the challenge of energy access"

The International Agency for Renewable Energy (IRENA) is home for two days of consultations on an important policy of cooperation on accelerating the deployment of renewable energy in Africa. 

The meeting held in Abu Dhabi until July 9, hosts 45 African countries, including Togo's representative Noupokou Dammipi, Minister of Energy and Mines (photo) 

Representatives of the African Union and high-level non-African delegates are also present (China, Germany, UAE, India, France, ...).

This meeting is the start of an ambitious project which includes developing strategies for Africa and the launch of a process to prepare African economies to cope with the current constraints of the deployment of renewable energy.

In the draft statement, the African Ministers emphasized that "At a time when Africa is booming with economic opportunities, an important issue that arises for Africa is to meet energy needs, the challenge of access to energy and ensures energy security, to mitigate the negative effects on price volatility, energy insecurity and environmental degradation. We also recognize the significant potential of renewable energy to accelerate the development of Africa through the expansion of energy access, enhancing energy security and support issues related to mitigation and adaptation climate change.
