In the last decade, Ghana has made significant
progress in increasing electricity generation and access, resulting in high
economic growth. However, inefficiencies remain beside these improvements,
including extraordinarily high distribution losses; thus, electricity is quite
expensive. About 25 percent of electricity generated in Ghana is lost at the
retail end, a situation caused partially by dilapidated infrastructure.
To address this challenge, the Power Energy Ghana
Exhibition – a complete international exhibition of the power/energy sector –
is set to take off in Accra next month from November 14-16, 2022 at the Accra
International Conference Centre.
This exhibition will serve as a platform for finding
solutions to the country’s power problems.
The event will bring together manufacturers,
exporters, wholesalers, dealers and distributors of the power electrical energy
equipment, gadgets and products – including transformers, wires, solar panels,
batteries, invertors, generators, and everything in the electrical industry of
the West African region – into Ghana; hosting close to 100 exhibitors in the
expo from India, Turkey, Nigeria, Italy, UAE, UK, France, Ghana and other
countries… with 4000+ visitors from Ghana and West Africa.
The event is well-received and supported by key
stakeholder organizations and associations in the country, like Ghana
Electrical Contractors Association, Ghana Electrical Dealers Associations,
Ghana Unions of Traders Association, Energy Chamber of Ghana, Ghana Chamber of
Construction Industries, and other stakeholders including international partners
like UK Ghana Chamber and CCI France Ghana export.
The India pavilion at the expo, with about 40+
companies’ participation, is organized by the Indian Chamber of Commerce with
support from the Government of India; and is the largest contingent in the
The exhibition is expected to address the power and
energy supplies demand and issues in the country so that the robust power
sector in the country can be built and developed. This goes hand in hand with
the vision of the Government of Ghana to have a strong industrial support
infrastructure for export and job creation.
Ghanaian and West African companies will have the
opportunity to connect with the manufacturers and suppliers exhibiting in the
event. One to one prefixed meetings have been scheduled to help companies to
get to know the profile of exhibitors in advance in order to understand and prioritize
which of them they wish to meet for potential collaboration, partnership
distribution arrangement, and joint venture and investment tie-ups.
