Participants from Ghana, Zambia and China have just concluded their maiden joint stakeholders meeting for South-South Co-operation in rebewable energy technology transfer held Beijing and Chengdu.
The event formed part of activities of the tripartite project, which aims at enhancing the transfer of knowledge on renewable energy technologies from China to African countries, particularly, Ghana and Zambia.
The project is funded by the Danish Government, through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and implemented by the Energy Commission in Ghana, the Ministry of Mines and Energy in the Zambia and the Administrative Centre for China’s Agenda 21(ACCA21) in China.
Through the project, the Energy Commission, with the UNDP, will provide concrete solutions for energy access for productive use through technology transfer and South-South co-operation.
The project involves a wide range of stakeholders, from the private sector to research institutions, and creates communities of practice in the sphere of renewable energy in Ghana and China, which would facilitate project implementation and continued cooperation beyond the project.
Eric Antwi-Agyei, the Project Co-ordinator for Ghana, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) here Thursday that more than 200 delegates participated in the meeting, including 40 from Ghana and Zambia. The Ghanaian delegation was led by Wisdom A. Togobo, Director of Renewable Energy and Alternative Energy at the Ministry of Power.
