Theo Acheampong spoke to Ghanaian media on the sidelines of the Africa Oil Governance Summit on developments in the country’s power sector. In two separate interviews given to Joy News, he discussed the impact of Ghana’s over three-year energy crisis on the economy. He also commented on the government plans to end the crisis by reforming the energy sector value chain through the creation of a new Ministry of Power decoupled from the erstwhile Ministry of Energy and Petroleum. Other issues he covered include electricity tariff pricing reform, development of regional power markets and the addition of new generation capacity by independent power producers (IPPS) to augment supply.
