Vision Statement and Overall Objective
The overall objective of ECREEE is to contribute to the sustainable economic, social and environmental development of West Africa by improving access to modern, reliable and affordable energy services, energy security and reduction of energy related GHG emissions and climate change impacts on the energy system.

This objective will be achieved through the promotion of regional markets for renewable energy and energy efficiency. The activities of ECREEE will therefore directly contribute to the achievement of the goals of the ECOWAS white paper, the Millennium Development Goals (MDG's) and the international GHG mitigation goals.

Mission Statement and Specific Objective
The specific objective of ECREEE is to create favourable framework conditions and an enabling environment for renewable energy and energy efficiency markets by supporting activities directed to mitigate existing barriers

The three main goals of ANSOLE are:
