2 E LECTRICITY A CCESS IN G HANA The Present Situation The process of getting to where we are The future 2 Noxie Consult

3 E LECTRICITY A CCESS S ITUATION NOW Ghana has presently (2010) an electrification access rate of over 72%. The government has set an ambitious target of universal access of 100% by 2020. 3 Noxie Consult

4 D EFINITIONS AS USED IN P RESENTATION There are two definitions of electrification: a. Electrification (penetration) rate: percentage of Communities connected with electricity, either grid or off-grid. b. Access rate: percentage of Households connected with electricity. 4 Noxie Consult

7 N ATIONAL E LECTRIFICATION S CHEME O BJECTIVES To connect all communities with a population above 500 in 1989, to the national grid: there were 4,221 communities in Ghana that had a population higher than 500 of which only 478 had access to electricity supply; To construct new and reinforce existing generation and transmission facilities to support and sustain the scheme; To promote the productive uses of electricity in order to improve upon people's standard of living and accelerate poverty alleviation; To encourage the development and establishment of local indigenous industries to support and sustain the scheme thereby creating employment and increasing productivity; To enhance activities in other sectors of the economy such as agriculture, health, education and tourism; and To increase the overall socio-economic development of the country. 7 Noxie Consult

8 N ATIONAL E LECTRIFICATION S CHEME National Electrification Planning Study (NEPS) was done by Acres International Ltd of Canada with Canadian Government grant in 1988/89; Master Plan outlined six 5-year implementation phases (1990 – 2020) - 30 years; In 1989 Government of Ghana endorsed the NES with overall goal of universal access by 2020. 8 Noxie Consult

9 N ATIONAL E LECTRIFICATION P ROGRAMME At the start of the NEP the electrification rate was 28% Phase I District Capitals Electrification Project Extension of national grid to all 110 political Districts capitals (at that time) and towns and villages en- route to the District capitals. 46 out of the 110 district capitals were connected at the start of the NEP. Phase II and onwards Electrification of communities based on the most economically viable projects. 9 Noxie Consult

10 N ATIONAL E LECTRIFICATION P ROGRAMME NEP ( II ) NEP was designed to cater for the first two phases of the NES as recommended in the NEPS report and this covered 455 communities including the 64 district capitals. The District Capitals Project was to enhance the official government work and commercial businesses of the districts. This was done with annual budgetary allocations and bi-lateral and multi-lateral loans. 10 Noxie Consult

11 M AP OF G HANA 11 Noxie Consult

12 S ELF H ELP E LECTRIFICATION P ROGRAMME (SHEP) This is a Government of Ghana (GOG) complementary programme to speed up the process by electrifying towns and villages which were prepared to help themselves. i.e. Contribute to the cost of electrification of their communities. With the active implementation of SHEP the Access rate had rose to 54% by 2005. 12 Noxie Consult

13 Q UALIFYING C RITERIA FOR SHEP Community should be located within 20km of an existing 33kV or 11kV source of supply; Community must be willing and able to procure and erect the required number of standard LV poles needed for the LV distribution network within the community; At least 33% of houses in community must be wired and ready for service. 13 Noxie Consult

14 I NSTITUTIONAL A RRANGEMENT The two pillars of the NES: NEP SHEP Both implemented by Ministry of Energy 14 Noxie Consult

15 I MPLEMENTATION OF R URAL E LECTRIFICATION 15 Noxie Consult National Electrification Fund (NEF), Dedicated donor assistance Material Supplies Procures & delivers to site Contractors & Consultants Hires Rural Electrification Site Install networks on site Ministry of Energy Administers District Assemblies Site selection under SHEP Communicates selected site ECG-VRA-NED Maintains system after completion

16 A NOTHER M ODEL EXAMINED BUT NOT ADOPTED Set up a Rural Electrification Agency (REA) and a Rural Electrification Fund (REF) outside the Ministry of Energy as an autonomous body to implement rural electrification. Not adopted because of the creation of another level of bureaucracy. 16 Noxie Consult

17 C OSTS AND F INANCING M ECHANISMS NEP connected the last batch of 23 district capitals and over 400 other towns for US$185 million. (1996 – 1998) 17 Noxie Consult

22 A CHIEVEMENT OF THE NES NES began as scheduled in 1990 At the end of 2004 access rated had reached 54% corresponding to 11 million people (at that time) In mid- 2005, 3,026 towns and communities (including all district capitals) were electrified. This figure includes towns/villages that were not captured by NEPS. 22 Noxie Consult
