In 2015, Ghana released its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) for the UNFCCC. For its NDC, the GoG committed to generating 10 percent of the country’s electricity from renewables by 2030. The Deutsche Gesellschaft fur international Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Government has been supporting the Ministry of Energy (MoEn) to successfully carry out its mandates through the bilateral partnership programme, “Capacity for the successful implementation of the Renewable Energy Act (C-SIREA) Ghana”.

C-SIREA activities focus on policy, implementation and educational support in three key elements of the energy sector: grid-connected renewables and net metering, large-scale renewables and energy efficiency. The third component of the C-SIREA project ‘Energy Efficiency for Households/SME’s focuses on educational advice on best practices in households and SME’s to promote energy efficiency in the neighbourhood. C-SIREA’s key implementation partner for this project is Energy Foundation (EF).
