Development Of Rate Setting Guidelines For Embedded Generation

The assignment comprised of four broad tasks:

  • Engineering assessment,
  • Power System Studies,
  • Financial & Economic considerations,

The output of the assignment was the technical, commercial and regulatory framework for the connection and operation of Embedded Generation Facilities (EGF) in the Ghanaian distribution network.

The specific objectives were:

  • to provide a fair and transparent pricing regime for embedded generation in Ghana,
  • to remove the pricing and other regulatory obstacles which had prevented the development of renewable energy and other embedded generation in Ghana,
  • to ensure that distribution utilities were provided with the appropriate incentives to facilitate the connection of embedded generators to their networks.
