The Assembly is the Agency’s supreme decision-making body and brings together Heads of State, Ministers, government officials, and representatives from the private sector, civil society and other international organisations to reaffirm the global renewable energy agenda and make concrete steps to accelerate the global energy transition.


This was contained in a statement issued by Nana Kofi Oppong-Damoah, Head of Communications and Public Affairs at the Ministry, in Accra and copied to the Ghanaian Times.


It said the Ghanaian delegation included Dr Alfred Ofosu-Ahenkorah, Executive Secretary of EC, Mr Wisdom Ahiataku-Togobo, Director in charge of Renewable and Alternative Energies at the Ministry, and Mr Oppong-Damoah.
