Energy Bill in Parliament
The Ministry of Energy
has laid before Parliament a Renewable Energy Bill that aims at supporting the development, utilization
and efficient management of renewable energy sources in the country.
The bill provides for the utilization, sustainability and adequate supply of renewable energy for electricity
and heat generation and related matters. It is an attempt by government to provide a framework to support the
development and utilization of renewable energy sources and the creation of an enabling environment to attract
investment in renewable energy sources.In accordance with the standing orders of the House, Speaker Justice Joyce
Bamford-Addo has referred the document to the Mines and Energy Committee of the House for consideration and report.
Among the major aims of the bill is to increase the proportion of renewable energy, particularly solar, wind, mini
hydro and waste-to-energy in the national energy supply mix while contributing to the mitigation of climate.

electricity per annum with 6million pieces of Compact Fluorescent lamps of
various wattages 9W -20W that will consume a total of about 151.475GWH of
will save approximately124.2MW in peak demand (207MW peak demand at a load
factor of 60%), 429,525MWH of electricity annually and save about 150,000tCO2
per annum.The project is being coordinated by the Energy Foundation and the
