The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) has responded to the World Bank’s warning to Ghana about the country’s present energy situation.
Anna Bjerde, the World Bank’s Managing Director of Operations, has advised that Ghana’s government create an emergency action plan to address the country’s energy issue.
Bjerde stressed that the World Bank is dedicated to provide technical assistance to Ghana’s energy sector in order to maintain economic resilience.
According to Duncan Amoah, COPEC’s Executive Secretary, the power’s sustainability is dependent on financial and technical concerns.
He said on the Ama Ghana Morning Show that nobody can state the country has generating issues.
According to Mr Amoah, for the past five years, Ghana has been at about 5000 generating capacity.
He continued that “our peak demand is less than 3600 megawatts.
He revealed that the current challenge of energy is financing the power the IPPs generate.
