IRENA, together with the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency and the International Institute for Water and Environmental Engineering (2iE), organised a four-day technical training workshop for ECOWAS-based renewable energy entrepreneurs, which addressed entrepreneurs’ requests for technical assistance in scaling up renewable energy enterprises. The workshop was facilitated by key experts in the field of renewable energy entrepreneurship and led to experience sharing between entrepreneurs from within and outside the ECOWAS region. The workshop explored viable business models, marketing and sales strategies, after-sales servicing, building banking relationships with the present financial institutions and customizing renewable energy solutions to end-user needs, amongst other topics.
