  • Performance standards and labelling for LED lighting in Ghana

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Background

    The Government of Ghana is already an energy efficiency leader in Africa. In 2007 the country implemented a programme to replace 6 million incandescent lamps with CFLs which resulted in peak savings of 124MW and CO2 savings of 112320 tonnes per annum.

    Purpose

    To develop introduce and enforce energy performance standards and labelling to ensure high quality LED lamps in Ghana

    Implementor

    Ghana Standards Authority

  • Geographic information system (GIS) tools to support RE planning in Ghana

    Sectors:

    Background

    Ghana is endowed with abundant renewable energy (RE) resources including solar wind biomass and hydro resources which could supplement the traditional sources of energy for the country. The Energy Commission – the Ghanaian Energy regulator is preparing a RE policy and regulatory framework and is drafting a RE law. The intent is to provide a level playing field that will attract potential developers of RE energy production and to provide a framework for climate change mitigation in Ghana.

    Purpose

    As an integral part of the GEF Strategic Energy Programme for West Africa, the project would focus on promoting knowledge management in the field of RE and EE in the target region and with international partner institutions; in addition to ensuring coherence and coordination between country level projects, and building capacity through training workshops at the regional / national level. The project will also aim at strengthening regional integration and networking, and deepening programmatic framework approach adopted under the umbrella programme.

  • Building a reliable energy access database for sustainable energy expansion in Ghana

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Background

    Access to reliable and robust energy data is a key requirement for effective energy planning - and for the economic growth that it drives. Currently Ghana's energy data is scattered among many organisations who do not always make it accessible. This impedes the expansion of access to clean energy. To address this issue an Energy Access Data (EAD) task force was set up at a meeting of energy sector board chairs and CEOs in 2011 to facilitate the development of a shared energy database.
