Water and energy management experts from across the country are meeting in Accra to dialogue on how to improve power supply and better adopt renewable energy in the face of projected climate changes.
The meeting has become imperative in view of the impact climate changes are likely to have on electricity generation methods such as hydro, wind and solar. It has, therefore, become crucial for the country to explore options for energy sustainability and renewal.
The five-day workshop has brought together experts from the Energy Commission, the Water Resources Commission, the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, the Volta River Authority, the Water Research Institute and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Some participants in the workshop will be involved in research for climate-resilient, renewable based energy and water management systems. They will also be introduced to and given hands-on-training on two software tools on water and energy modelling.
