AGI launches corporate website to help members reduce energy cost



website, AGI, Energy

The Association of Ghana Industries Energy Service Centre (AGI-ESC) has launched a corporate website to provide its members with information, project assistance and market linkages relating to Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE).

The website has features such as “Green Job” which gives information to the public on job opportunities available in the energy space and an energy savings calculator to assist companies to save on their energy costs.

Launching the website in Accra today, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AGI, Seth Twum-Akwaboah, explained that although the importance of renewable energy and energy efficiency in reducing energy costs for businesses was well-known, its adoption still remained low in Ghana.

That, he said, was due to uncertainty surrounding the capability of RE/EE, service providers, avoidance of first-mover risks and lack of adequate financing for projects.

“With the country’s objective to achieve a 10 per cent renewable energy component in the national energy mix by 2030, there is the need to make RE and EE solutions readily available and accessible for industrial and domestic users,” he said.

He was hopeful the website will provide the necessary information needed for businesses to take advantage and become competitive on the international market.
