Strategic National Energy Plan (SNEP) 2006-2020

Executive
Plan
Passed in 2006
The plan reviews the energy supply structure for Ghana and sets out the energy needs to meet development objectives.
 
 Volume one of the SNEP covered the demand from residential; commercial & services sector; agriculture & fisheries; industry and transportation sectors. Volume two covers the supply-side: electricity; petroleum; wood fuels and renewables.
 
 The Plan has four sectoral Annexes: Energy Demand Sectors of the Economy; Electricity Plan; Petroleum Plan; and Wood fuels & Renewables Plan.
 
 The overall national renewable energy policy target is to attain 10% renewable energy in the national energy mix by 2020.
