The Minister for Energy, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh has called for the need for Ghana and other African countries to ensure organic flow towards the transition to cleaner energy.

The minister said the global advocacy for energy transition and cleaner energy was not lost on those in Africa and that Ghana remains committed to its SDG-7 goals.

Speaking at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC 2021) in Houston, Dr Prempeh said Ghana has been working towards clean energy in its energy mix through several initiatives and policies.

At the ribbon-cutting ceremony during the OTC at the Ghana Pavilion, the minister presented the country’s petroleum industry (upstream and downstream) and other opportunities to investors.
