Ghana has reached 72 percent electricity access across the country attributable to the commitment and collaboration between governments and developmental players, experts say.

According to Andrew Barfour, project coordinator at the Ghana Energy Development and Access Project (GEDAP), the country’s National Electrification Scheme (NES) has been such a success to date thanks to the commitment of parties – whether government, donors, or rural community members – to making wide-spread electrification a reality, and the willingness of parties to collaborate.

“…the commitment of various governments towards the success of the programme and the contribution of SHEP [self-help electrification programme] has helped in the phenomenal success.  Also the contribution and collaboration of our development partners has contributed immensely to the success of GEDAP,” Barfour explains.
