POWER SUB SECTOR
Ghana’s power supply sources are from hydroelectricity, thermal fueled by crude oil, natural gas and diesel, solar and also imports from La Cote D’Ivoire. Ghana also exports power to Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso. Ongoing grid expansions would allow further exports to other neighboring countries in the sub region.
The petroleum industry is typically categorized into three segments; Upstream, Midstream and Downstream. For the purposes of regulation in Ghana, the industry is divided into Upstream and downstream subsectors which cover activities from the exploration and production of petroleum through refining, storage, transportation, to the marketing of petroleum products.
