Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management Project

This project’s objective is to reduce excessive energy use by consumers, thereby increasing the reserve margin between electricity supply and peak demand, making electricity more reliable. The project will also improve the financial viability of ECG and NEDCO by helping Ghana’s government agencies, which comprise a significant portion of total energy demand, to reduce their energy consumption. This project will achieve these results by developing and implementing standards and labels, improving energy audits, providing education and public information, and investing in energy efficient infrastructure.

Electricity Company of Ghana Financial and Operational Turnaround Project

The project’s objective is to improve the quality and reliability of electricity through reduced outages and reduced aggregate technical losses. The project expects to achieve this objective through infrastructure investments designed to reduce losses and improve service quality.

Through the introduction of Private Sector Participation (PSP) in the management of ECG, the project originally aimed to improve cost-effective service delivery by ECG, reduce aggregate commercial and collection losses, and ensure ECG can serve as a creditworthy and credible off-taker under power purchase agreements. Since the Government of Ghana terminated the PSP these additional objectives will not be fully achieved.
