Energy Development and Access Project (formerly) Development of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

Project Summary

The global objective of this project is to assist Ghana in mitigating climate change through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The development objective is to provide increased access to affordable, clean, and efficient energy services. The GEF project intends to assist Ghana in establishing an enabling environment of a policy and regulatory framework and facilitating market development to attract private sector participation in large-scale commercialization of RE/EE. Consequently, it is expected that an increasing number of local entrepreneurs would be emerged to provide RE/EE services, which would result in increased energy access, improved energy efficiency, as well as reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
