The Ghana Energy Transition Plan (GETIP) is being implemented, and the country’s president, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo-Addo, is urging stakeholders in the energy sector to assist this effort.
The strategy is supposed to realize a vision for a cleaner and more suitable energy environment. The President called for this plan at the seventh Ghana Energy Awards [GEA].
The President declared that the country’s journey to achieve net-zero emissions in 2060 will be ensured by the GETIP framework, which was revealed during the Global Africa Business Initiative event in New York last September.
It is stated that the plan aligns with both the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Ghana’s domestic developments.
With the expectation that in the following 40 years, the amount would have increased by almost $550 billion, or 10% of Ghana’s yearly GDP. “Although this seems substantial, it is not as much as what we would spend if we continued indifferently.” In addition, the framework will benefit the economy in the long run. He stated.
According to President Akuffo-Addo, Ghana would be positioned as a global leader in energy transformation thanks to the framework. “One of the first nations to use carbon capture to decarbonize our energy sector will be Ghana. The nation will show the rest of the world that social progress and economic success can coexist with low-carbon development.
He enthralled all interested parties with the proposal, arguing that it was an act of duty and patriotism to protect the nation from the effects of climate change.
