Research Story/ Article
A consortium involving The Brew-Hammond Energy Centre has been selected by the Ministry of Energy to conduct studies nationwide on the Selection, Assessment and Sensitization of Public Institutions for Net-Metering Solar PV (NMPV). The consortium is led by AZIMUT 360 SSCL of Spain and includes Sistemes Avançats d’energia Solar Tèrmica, SCCL (AIGUASOL) also of Spain.
The project entails collecting data on public buildings from all sixteen (16) Regions of the country and using same to prepare preliminary designs and a Report to the Ministry.
- To select and assess public buildings for the adoption of Net Metering PV systems under the SREP programme;
- To facilitate the reduction of costs of energy consumption in public facilities, identifying actions and locations that could have a more relevant cost/benefit impact, including demonstrative aspects;
- To sensitize and catalyse the adoption of building-scale PV systems as a key driver to contribute to the achievement of 10% renewable energy target policy objective in Ghana.
