Promoting Solar Energy use in the Ghanaian Community

The African continent continues to be one of the world’s fastest-growing economic hubs, and prioritising the improvement of Africa’s energy supply is key to unlocking further growth. As an NGO that’s at the forefront of energy transition, we are committed to partnering with businesses and other relevant stakeholders to ensure we find the right energy solutions to improve and drive Africa’s growth. We have deep sector expertise and use our insights to support energy projects focusing on clean technologies, providing information on how things work and how to use energy efficiently.

The continued education on energy will result in increased productivity and economic activity for the continent and, as such, our commitment to playing a pivotal role in facilitating the Energy usage in Africa Ghana to be presided. We educate them on how solar energy works

How does solar power work?

Solar power works by converting energy from the sun into power. There are two forms of energy generated from the sun for our use – electricity and heat. Both are generated through the use of solar panels, which range in size from residential rooftops to ‘solar farms’ stretching over acres of rural land.

Is solar power a clean energy source?

Yes, solar power is a renewable and infinite energy source which creates no harmful greenhouse gas emissions – as long as the sun continues to shine, energy will be released. The carbon footprint of solar panels is already quite small, as they last for at least 20 years with minimal loss in efficiency. The materials used in the manufacturing the panels are increasingly recycled, so the carbon footprint will continue to shrink. In using solar energy we promote renewable energy and there for contribute to a sustainable development goals 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), and 13 (Climate Action).
