dc.description.abstractThis report provides an analysis of Ghana’s electricity sector policies, laws, and regulations in relation to crowding-in private sector participation in developing national electricity infrastructure. The report is part of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and RES4Africa Foundation joint program on Regulatory Review of the Electricity Sector in Africa: Towards Crowding-in Private Sector Investment. Ghana’s power sector reforms were initiated in the 1990s to open the system to private participation, introduce competition, and enhance the efficiency of electricity service provision. The reforms introduced far-reaching policy and institutional changes to stimulate the transformation of the sector to meet international standards. Before the reform, the prevailing system was a vertically integrated, monopolistic system in which the main power utility, the Volta River Authority, owned and operated all the electricity generation and transmission, and a significant part of the distribution assets. The reforms resulted in unbundled generation, transmission, and distribution services controlled by separate independent utilities. At the center of the reformed electricity market is the National Interconnected Transmission System, owned and operated by the National Grid Company (GRIDCo).en
