CSOs Alliance push for ambitious energy transition

Ghana’s civil society organisations are calling on political parties to commit to ambitious energy transition policies ahead of the 2024 elections.

The CSOs Alliance, made up of four coalitions and eight organisations, wants parties to incentivise oil and gas companies to invest in renewable energy.

They have made 15 recommendations, including leveraging the Petroleum Revenue Management Act to finance the energy transition agenda.

The alliance says Ghana has not fully benefited from its energy, petroleum, and gas sectors, and wants to see sustainable development, economic stability, and good governance in these areas.

Dr Steve Manteaw, convener of the CSOs Alliance, said the recommendations represent a roadmap for the country’s future.

Kyei Kwadwo Yamoah from Kasa Ghana added that the proposals will be used to critique party manifestos and ensure the next government prioritises the energy transition.

The CSOs Alliance is urging political parties to work with them to ensure a sustainable future for Ghana.
