Purchase Report

The Ghana Energy Industry is expected to grow from a current market size of $XX.XX Billion to $XX.XX Billion by the year 2020,  growing at a CAGR of X.XX%.

Ghana is a multicultural and ethnically diverse West African nation and is the 9th largest African economy. It was one of the first African nations to declare independence from colonial rule and features one of the freest social and cultural societies on the African continent. On the Ibrahim Index of African Governance, Ghana ranks as the 7th best economy in Africa which implies a relative safety of foreign investment in the region. Also Ghana has ranks relatively high in the ease of doing business index and also has extremely high freedom of press rating which makes it a good emerging market to invest into.

Ghana is one of the very few nations on earth which derives majority of its energy needs from renewable sources of energy. Majority of Ghana’s energy supply comes from hydroelectric power. But most development and activity is happening in the Solar Energy and Ghana will become the first country in the world to get 6% of its total electricity needs from solar power. But the percentage of solar power would soon get into double digits and keep on rising  still as the government is laying full emphasis on this energy source.

Blue Energy is commissioning the fourth largest solar power plant in the world costing close to $400 million. Hence the solar energy source can be tapped into , as there is lot of opportunity in Ghana in the sector.

After Solar Energy , Wind Energy and Bio Energy are also very important in the quest of the government to have at least 10% of the electricity generation from renewable sources other than hydroelectricity by the year 2020. Ghana has tremendous potential in the Wind and Bio Energy as well and investments in these sectors would reap massive return going into the future.

Ghana is one of the most promising countries in Africa currently and has a realistic chance of becoming an Industrialized country by the year 2050. To fuel this growth , energy would be needed and this additional requirement is expected to be provided by the Renewable Energy sources which offers tremendous opportunities currently. Ghana is located in a region which has a chronic shortage of energy, any surplus electricity it generates can be easily sold to neighboring countries hence , there is unlikely ever to be excess supply, hence the sector will provide attractive opportunities for many years to come.
