Initial findings for Ghana
- Ghana has an over-supply of installed generation capacity but faces severe electricity supply challenges
- Renwable energy development is a key pillar in Ghana’s Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement
- There are a number of renewable energy enabling instruments in place
- Ghana has the highest electricity costs for commercial and industrial facilities in sub-Sahara Africa
- Ghana’s financial sector is diverse & competitive, but has not yet taken a step into renewable energy finance
We would like to invite you to join us for a Webinar on Clean Captive Installations for Industrial Clients in Sub-Sahara Africa.
The United Nations Environment Programme, in partnership with its collaborating Centre at Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, is implementing the “Clean Captive Installations for Industrial Clients in Sub-Sahara Africa” Project in four countries: Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. The project aims to demonstrate the economic and financial viability of clean captive energy installations for industries and enhance their adoption of a replicable model in the four partner countries and beyond to the entire continent.
This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of Germany. The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety supports this initiative based on a decision adopted by the German Bundestag. As part of this project, solar commercial and industrial pilot projects will be supported in each of the countries.
For this live Webinar, we will present two sessions on Call for Proposal for Pilot Projects and Ghana overview of the C&I solar market.
SESSION 1 – CALL FOR PROPOSAL
When: Tuesday 23rd March 2021 | 9 AM to 12 PM GMT
The first session of this webinar will focus on the call for proposal for the pilot projects that target captive power use in innovative business models, to overcome current barriers within the captive solar market. The session includes the application process, the selection criteria, the timeline, along with an open-ended Q&A session to address all comments from the audience
