1 Ghana’s Power Outlook 1

2 Generation Sources 2 Currently, VRA contributes 75% of the total generation.

3 Diversification of Supply Sources and Benefits Supply Sources Hydro Thermal – Gas, LCO & DFO fired plants Solar NB: VRA is in the process of upgrading all simple cycle plants to combine cycle plantsBenefits Enhancement of supply reliability Supply security Reduction of risk to inflow variability and fuel supply challenges 3

4 Current Challenges and Mitigation Measures Challenges Inadequate generation capacity reserve Lack of Gas supply, limiting thermal generation Mitigation Measures VRA is undertaking more generation projects. VRA is planning to add about 1,000 MW of generation capacity over the next 5 years. – This includes upgrade of simple cycle plants to combine cycle to reduce cost of supply. Pursuing Solar and wind energy projects To secure future gas supply reliability, VRA is pursuing the use of LNG to generate electricity 4
