Deputy Minister of Energy in Ghana, Andrews Agyapa Mercer, has announced the country’s readiness to phase out fossil fuels and transition to renewable energy.

Speaking at the Eastern Regional Forum for National Energy Transition Plan organised by the Ministry of Energy at Koforidua, the Deputy Minister of Energy said, the government is cognisant of the fact that the transition to cleaner energy in the next few years will require substantial resources.

The government is determined to leverage revenues from indigenous oil and gas resources to help finance the transition.

Mercer said the government will continue to explore and develop oil and gas in a more environmentally friendly manner, enforce the zero flaring policy and carbon capture utilisation and storage technology to ensure that petroleum activities do not adversely impact the environment.
