Economic growth in line with environmental, climate and resource protection requires innovative ideas and approaches. The West African Clean Energy & Environment Exhibition”, WACEE for short, provides a yearly platform to promote networking and exchange for creative sustainable economic development solutions.
A reliable, economical and environmentally friendly power supply is a prerequisite for sustainable development. In Ghana, a center of excellence for renewable energy and energy efficiency at the KNUST University in Kumasi will contribute towards building up the required know-how.
Sustainable economic development requires a considerate and efficient use of natural resources. The competence center for renewable energies and resource efficiency at the University of Kumasi in Ghana aims at showcasing how this can look like in practice. For this purpose, the University partners with two North Rhine-Westphalian Universities.
