Ghana Energy Sector Recovery Programme Steering Committee

The Government of Ghana inaugurated the Energy Sector Recovery Programme Steering Committee, comprising members across various sectors and ministries. 

The Committee proceeds from the collaborative consultation process between the Government and each Independent Power Producer (IPP) and Gas Supplier (GS) to help resolve energy issues in a manner that is sustainable for both Ghana and its partners. 

The Energy Sector Recovery Task Force will ensure and oversee the implementation of the Energy Sector Recovery Programme (ESRP). 

Ken Ofori Atta, Minister of finance, indicated that this Steering Committee is of crucial importance for the future of Ghana’s energy sector and Ghana’s long-term sustainable development.  

Since August 2019, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Energy have been engaging with IPP and GS representatives to find solutions that result in a fair outcome for all stakeholders – both the Ghanaian people and investors. The inclusive composition of the steering committee is expected to help comprehensively address the issues at hand. 

Ghana has an installed power generation capacity of 5,083 MW, a dependable capacity of 4,593 MW and a peak demand of around 2,700 MW.
