Ghana-Assessing Policy Options for Increasing the Use of Renewable Energy for Sustainable Development
"The study analyzes alternative national policies to increase the share of renewables in the energy supply mix of Ghana. It was initiated by DESA in response to the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation’s call to, “With a sense of urgency, substantially increase the global share of renewable energy sources”. The study combines the IAEA models for analyzing national energy systems with data provided by the Energy Commission of Ghana, UNEP, FAO and UNIDO. It is a demonstration study, not a comprehensive analysis of policy options for Ghana. But it provides generic insights on policy options and describes one sort of joint assistance that UN organizations can offer to interested States."
