He said that by the end of 2023, the administration intends to raise the percentage to 90%.

The deputy transport minister stated that Ghana’s electricity reserve capacity—hydro, thermal, and renewables—is greater than that of other African nations during a stakeholder consultation on electric vehicle policy and implementation framework in Accra on Wednesday, August 2, 2023.

“Ghana is the next-highest electricity-penetration country in Africa. 86.3% nationwide, and this administration is dedicated to bringing that number up to 90% by the end of the year. We also plan to achieve universal coverage by the end of 2024, he added.

“Really and truly, our reserve capacity is way more than a lot of countries, even in Africa,” Hassan Tampuli continued.Many of these nations have high penetration rates: Burkina Faso has 19%, Liberia has 29%, Niger has 18.6%, and so on. We have enough since Côte d’Ivoire, at 71.1%, is the closest you can get. Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we have until we compare it to other nations.
