Accelerating Industrial Energy Efficiency in Ghana Case Study
Climate change is fast disrupting the lives and livelihoods of farming and fishing communities in Ghana. Unpredictable weather conditions and rising sea levels mean that Ghana’s policies and economy must adapt to meet the challenges of a changing climate.
Ghana is determined to do its part to mitigate global climate change, while also creating a reliable national power supply, especially for the emerging industrial sector. Meeting the growing energy demand while moving away from fossil fuels is a critical part of this effort. To help slash emissions and transition away from unsustainable energy supplies, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Industrial Energy Accelerator has trained 10 industries and 30 energy management consultants to become pioneers of the country’s energy efficiency movement.
