In June 2021, the Ghana Ministry of Energy approved a request from the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), a state-owned corporation, to engage this Independent Power Producer to finance and construct pipelines in an effort to stabilize the national energy grid. The project will, boost industrialization inland, establish Ghana as an exporter of NGLs and also reduce the environmental impact from the existing use of diesel and HFO + It will also reduce gas flaring, thereby reducing environmental pollution.
This leading Cleantech energy company is working on a key solution for the transition to fully renewable energy reliance: ultra-low cost long-duration energy storage. EnergyCo is developing and commercializing ultra-low cost ($1-$10/kWh), long duration (>100hr) energy storage systems that can be located in any market and scaled to match existing energy generation infrastructure globally.
This Independent Power Producer is an energy solutions provider based in the USA with operations in West Africa. Over the past 13 years they have transitioned their thermal operations from heavy oil and liquified petroleum gas to natural gas + they built their own private pipeline network + their long-term ambition is to deliver 100% clean electricity across Africa by 2035 + net-zero emissions by 2050.
Wind is one of the planet’s most efficient renewable power sources. Offshore winds tend to blow harder and more uniformly than on land. Since higher wind speeds can produce significantly more energy/electricity, developers are increasingly interested in pursuing offshore wind energy resources.
