Ghana

The Ghanaian grid has suffered from substantial generation deficits due to a combination of accelerating growth in demand, long term under investment in new generation assets and low rainfall in the Volta River catchment. In response to these challenges the Government has set a target to increase installed capacity from under 3,000MW to 5,000MW by 2020. In addition Government has enacted a Renewable Energy Law and set a target for 10% of generation capacity to come from new renewables sources including wind, solar, small and medium hydro and other sources. A feed-in-tariff regime was established in 2013 establishing tariffs for wind, solar, small and medium hydro and other sources.
