It is projected that there is the need to procure an additional generation capacity of 225 MW by January 2024 and an additional 200 MW by January 2025 to preserve the security of supply in Ghana. Given the desire to alter the generation mix to include more renewable sources, the main opportunities in the renewable energy subsector, include setting up local manufacturers and assemblers of renewable energy technology. There is now a concerted push to increase the contribution of renewable energy to total power supply sources and this will come with incentives to attract investors into this sector.

Ghana has a vibrant power generation terrain, with players from both the public and private sectors. Reforms in the power sector in the 1980s gradually removed barriers and created a level playing field for the participation of independent power producers in an area which hitherto had only public sector participants. The total installed capacity for existing plants in Ghana is 4,132 Megawatt (MW), consisting of hydro 38%; thermal 61%; and solar less than 1%. Current access to electricity remains at an average of 83 percent, with 50 percent of rural residents and 91 percent of urban residents connected to the electricity grid
