Article 1This Supplementary Act hereby adopts the Revised Master Plan for the generation and transmission of electrical energy of the ECOWAS Member States for a total amount of twenty six billion four hundred and sixteen million US Dollars (USD 26,416,000,000).
Article 2This Supplementary Act hereby equally adopts the following conclusions of the revision study on the ECOWAS Revised master Plan for the generation and transmission of electrical energy:
Article 3The projects identified in the Master Plan, annexed hereto and summarised in the table below, shall lead to total integration of the West African national electric systems:
|Number||Costs (billion US$)|
|Hydroelectric Power Plant Projects (7 640 MW)||24||13.803|
|Thermal Power Plant Projects (2 375 MW)||5||4.263|
|Renewable Energy Projects (800 MW)||4||1.893|
|Transmission Line Projects (16 000 km)||26||6.457|
Article 4Implementation of the priority regional projects shall result in the growth of the Net Present value of US$ 12.176 milliards for the region for the period 2012-2025.
Article 5Installation of Power Stabilisation Systems (PSS) in the existing power generation plants, or even in future plants, shall be mandatory, and special protection and defence mechanisms such as under frequency and under-voltage shall be adopted and harmonised by the countries. Furthermore, installation of compensation equipments at strategic locations shall be required.
Article 6To ensure effective and efficient implementation of the Revised Master Plan, the proposed implementation strategy shall be based on:Closer collaboration between WAPP, its members and the sub-regional organisations with a view to ensuring harmonious and coordinated development of the regional interconnected network;Promotion of the Specific Purpose Company (SPC) approach wherever necessary as an implementation mechanism of the project whose efficiency may alleviate or eradicate the major weaknesses that cause delays in implementation of the projects;Strong advocacy and support i) to individual country initiatives for greater private sector participation in the management of electricity companies, ii) for the use of prepaid meters, iii) to investments for the reduction of distribution losses and for greater energy efficiency as a means of improving the efficiency of the companies;Search for financing arrangements such as concessional funds and such financial instruments as carbon credits, the Global Environment Fund and the EDF for the renewable energy projects;Creation of a Fund to finance development activities relating to WAPP projects such as the Fund put in place by the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA). This Fund such as the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the West African Development Bank, and the ECOWAS Commission.
Article 7In view of the anticipated considerable finance requirements, the financing sources for the priority WAPP projects shall be diversified with a view to ensuring private sector participation and bilateral cooperation.
Article 8Member States shall put in place the appropriate institutional frameworks to facilitate the immediate implementation of the projects by specifically creating the enabling environment for private sector participation. Member States shall allocate financial resources to the EDF Fund for the development and implementation of the renewable energy projects identified in this Revised Master Plan.
Article 9WAPP Member States and electricity companies shall take the necessary measures to improve their technical, financial and marketing performances with a view to stimulating private sector participation in the development of the electricity sub-sector of the sub-region.
Article 10The ECOWAS Commission shall provide WAPP with the required support for resource mobilisation with a view to accelerating the implementation of this Revised Master Plan.
Article 11WAPP shall put in place the Information and Coordination Centre and provide it with a complete communication system to ensure, among other things, coordinated, efficient and stable exchanges of electrical energy.
Article 12The electricity companies shall take measures to improve their technical, marketing and financial performances and become more proactive in reducing delays in project implementation in compliance with the requirements of the Technical and Financial Partners.
Article 13Financial resources shall be allocated, within the framework of the ECOWAS Fund for Development Financing for Transport and Energy sectors (ECOWAS-FODETE), with a view to implementing the priority WAPP projects.
Article 14The principle of using the Specific Purpose Company model as project implementation mechanism shall be strengthened in keeping with the provisions of Supplementary Act A/SA.3/01/08 of the Thirty-Third Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government held on 18 January 2008 in Ouagadougou.
Article 15The President of the ECOWAS Commission and the WAPP General Secretary shall, each within his own purview, take the necessary measures to ensure effective implementation of this Supplementary Act.
Article 16This Supplementary Act shall enter into force upon its signature and shall be published by the Commission in the Official Journal of the Community within thirty (30) days after its publication. It shall also be published by each Member State in its National Gazette upon notification thereof by the Commission.
Article 17This Supplementary Act shall be deposited with the Commission which shall transmit certified true copies thereof to all Member States and register it with the African Union, the United Nations Organisation and such other organisation as Council may determine.
