Ghana Energy Commission – Feasibility Study Institutional Biogas Programme

Client: Ghana Energy Commission
Period: June – November 2014

Partners for Innovation has started a feasibility study to set up an institutional biogas programme in Ghana. The study is executed for the Ghana Energy Commission (GEC, the executive agency for the Ghana Ministry of Energy), and funded by the Climate Support Facility, a European funded facility offering short-term customised technical assistance and training to public and private entities from ACP member states.

As part of its Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) action plan, Ghana wants to establish 200 institutional biogas systems for boarding schools, hospitals and prisons. These 200 systems will be the first phase of a more extensive programme facilitating the installation of many more institutional biogas systems. The study should lead to a ready-to-implement programme so the GEC is able to finance and build 200 institutional biogas systems.

For this study two missions to Ghana are foreseen, one in August and one in September. The final report will be available in November 2014. For this project Partners for Innovation will work together with Julius Cudjoe Ahiekpor, a Ghanaian bioenergy expert from Kumasi Polytechnic.
