Advocacy Action to Review and Enforce Ghana’s Renewable Energy (RE) Act 832 (2011)

This 1-year project with support from BUSAC began in November 2017, with an aim of addressing the legislative and regulatory constraints in the RE Act in favour of renewable energy businesses, and initiating a national advocacy action to promote the development of the RE industry in Ghana.

Key activities undertaken included:

  • Evidenced based research analysis and review of key provisions in the RE Act, that identified the gaps and recommended strategies and actions to bridge them;
  • Sensitization workshop that brought renewable energy businesses and civil society together to discuss the focus of the action and how to support the process for a successful outcome;
  • Media awareness creation of the advocacy issue in different media platforms;
  • Stakeholders forum that brought together the several actors in the RE industry to deliberate on key objectives of the project; and
  • Post-dialogue meetings with key state actors follow up on some outcomes in the sector.
