The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers(COPEC) has reacted to the World Bank’s caution to Ghana over the energy crisis the country is experiencing currently.

The World Bank Managing Director of Operations, Anna Bjerde, has recommended that the government of Ghana implement an emergency action plan to tackle the country’s energy crisis.

Bjerde emphasized that the World Bank is committed to providing technical advice to ensure that Ghana’s energy sector contributes to economic resilience.

According to Duncan Amoah, the Executive Secretary for COPEC, for the power to be sustained it depends on financial and technical issues.

He said on the Ama Ghana Morning Show that nobody can state the country has generating issues.

According to Mr Amoah, for the past five years, Ghana has been at about 5000 generating capacity.

He continued that “our peak demand is less than 3600 megawatts.

He revealed that the current challenge of energy is financing the power the IPPs generate.
