Promoting Renewable Energy

The Energy Commission is committed to developing and elaborating national policies and strategies for all renewable resources such as biomass, solar, geothermal, water and wind, as well as for technologies, demand and supply side management, including  solar photovoltaic systems for both stand-alone and grid connected, wind energy resource assessment and generation, small hydro development in Ghana covering mini, micro; biomass/biofuel and woodfuel resource assessment, development and generation.

In addition to the above efforts the Commission is also resolved to tackle the difficult but not insurmountable problems of changing consumption patterns and negative attitudes of the energy users which only result in wastage and high energy consumptions costs.
