Ghana Biogasprogram


Ghana Biogasprogram

Biogas technology is used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to provide clean and decentralized energy. Commissioned by the Ghana Energy Commission, Partners for Innovation carried out a feasibility study into a biogas program in Ghana.

Biogas in Ghana

Biogas is already widely used, among other things to improve sanitation, generate clean energy and to reduce CO2 emissions at the same time. Many Asian countries are using biogas, but in Africa this technology is still used to a very limited extent. The Ghanaian government sees many opportunities to improve access to energy through the use of biogas. That is why the technology is marked as a priority in the Ghanaian Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) action plan.

Feasibility study of a biogas program in Ghana

Commissioned by the Ghana Energy Commission, Emiel Hanekamp (Partners for Innovation) and Julius Cudjoe Ahiekpor (Kumasi Polytechnic and CEESD) carried out a feasibility study. In this study they investigated the technical and financial feasibility of institutional biogas systems in Ghana and their socio-economic and environmental impact. They also developed an action plan for the implementation of a National Biogas Program in which 200 schools, hospitals and prisons are supplied with biogas systems. This biogas program could be the start of the formation of a market for biogas systems in Ghana.
