Morocco to Participate in African Forum on Energy Efficiency, Sustainable Development
Dakar – A Moroccan delegation of about thirty operators, led by the National Federation of Electricity, Electronics and Renewable Energy (FENELEC), is in Dakar to participate in the African Forum on Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Development (Dakar 2022), held on February 16-18.
Following the example of Casablanca in 2018, Niamey in 2019, Bamako in 2020 and Abidjan in 2021, the Confederation of African Electricity (CAFELEC) is joining forces with the Federation of Senegalese Companies in Electricity (FESELEC) to organize this event on clean energy in Africa, said a FENELEC statement.
The Dakar 2022 Forum will bring together more than 150 private operators of delegations from 12 CAFELEC member countries, namely Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon, Guinea-Conakry, Mali, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Togo, it says.
According to the statement, the choice of Senegal is not accidental. It is due to its geostrategic position, its economic weight on the continent and its role as a locomotive in West Africa, but also and above all the country’s willingness to meet its energy challenge.
In this wake, the National Federation of Electricity, Electronics and Renewable Energy leads a strong delegation of thirty Moroccan operators in the electricity sector, energy efficiency and renewable energy, under the auspices of Hassan Naciri, Morocco’s Ambassador to Senegal.
“This will be the largest delegation announced at the Dakar 2022 Forum apart from that of the host country,” notes the statement, adding that the Forum will bring together equipment manufacturers, distributors, engineering firms, and many other specialists in in renewable energy.
