    Gov’t seeks strategic investments to accelerate clean, green energy – Dr. Bawumia

    Vice President Dr.
    Mahamudu Bawumia has said the government will continue to pursue the necessary
    strategic investments in clean energy and green technology while striking a
    balance to ensure the country’s hydrocarbon assets are not stranded.

    To this end, he said the
    Ministry of Energy and its agencies, will collaborate with the relevant
    stakeholders to ensure that the country’s clean and green energy goals are

    The Vice President spoke
    at the 6th Ghana Energy Awards, in Accra and reiterated that the country
    remains committed to fully transition by 2070, having outdoored the National
    Energy Transition Committee and the Ghana Energy Transition Plan.

    The country has also
    initiated several clean projects and initiatives that seek to reduce emissions,
    including solar plants, and the clean cooking initiative, among others.

    However, Dr. Bawumia
    observed that “having made these commitments, the critical concern for the
    sector and our country still exists – the continuous exploitation of our
    hydrocarbon assets.”

    He indicated that the
    government does not plan to abruptly abandon the exploitation of the oil and
    gas resources as they are critical to the economy.

    “Instead, the government
    intends to gradually wean Ghana off dependence on fossil fuel through the
    acceleration of the rollout of renewables,” he said.

    He further mentioned that
    the transition to a clean and diversified economy that is in harmony with the
    planet is a collective responsibility.

    This year’s awards
    ceremony was held under the theme: “Global decarbonisation: A just and
    equitable energy transition in Ghana.”
