In 2013, cooperation has been formalized between the JRC and the Centre for Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), aiming at enhancing collaboration in the field of renewable energies and energy efficiency, the development of common tools (e.g. country specific maps with renewable energy based electricity costs), validation of results and publications. Geo-information generated by JRC is now part of the ECOWREX tool.
Sharing this geo-information can also be marked as a milestone in the JRC's collaboration with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). This data is now available at the Global Atlas For Renewable Energy via its map catalogue and map server.
