Mr Hans-Helge Sander
Deputy Head of Mission, German Embassy to Ghana
Ghana’s power generation mix is expected to include 10% of renewable energy sources by the year 2020. That would be a significant leap from less than half a percent in 2016. However, this calculation does not account for the vast electricity generation from hydropower. Germany recognises Ghana’s renewable energy potential and will continue to offer support for renewable energy projects in Ghana.
Subsequently, Ghana has been named as one of the three countries in Africa to benefit from the bilateral reform partnership within the G20 “Compact with Africa” Programme. This compact initiative will bring up to additional 100 million euros to support the renewable energy sector in Ghana.
For the fourth time in a row, WACEE features an official “Made in Germany” pavilion consisting of 13 German exhibitors in addition to an information stand. The German pavilion is facilitated by the Federal German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in cooperation with the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry and supported by AHK Ghana.
I hope you take this opportunity to familiarize yourselves with state-of-the-art German engineered renewable energy technology, which combines sound technology with sound economics.
Mr Maximilian Butek
Delegate of German Industry and Commerce in Ghana
