Testimonials - this is what they said:

Hon. Dr. Kwabena Donkor (MP), Minister of Power of the Republic of Ghana:
Enormous progress has been achieved in the renewable energy sub-sector, including provision of over 500
Community Health facilities, 800 basic schools, and 90,000 homes in remote parts of the country with solar
home systems and portable lanterns. I am aware of the ongoing mini-grid power plants to provide
affordable, reliable and sustainable electricity to about half a million Ghanaians living in islands
communities and along the Volta Lake.

Monika Hennessen, Skytron Energy - Partnership Development Renewables:

We are convinced, that utility-scale PV will become a major energy provider in the West African countries in the near future. We expect the renewable energy sector to become an important job motor and an empowerment driver. We are overwhelmed by the huge interest and satisfied with the commitment of professional visitors. Investment in large-scale projects is expected in the coming years once the political framework and regulations will be in place.

Alain Relisieux, Wilo - Director Market Sub-segment:
Wilo is constantly improving the ranges of pumps to
reduce the energy consumption and supply efficient
and innovative systems. We think that our products can
support the sustainable growth of Ghana in the water and
waste water sectors. Our boosters and sewage systems
can insure constant pressure and proper waste water
lifting in big buildings. And our EN12845 approved firefighting systems can
protect any kind of large construction against fire.

Akua Akyaa Nkrumak, Jekora Ventures - Innovations Manager:
Ghana is the most important market for us, to offer professional local service in waste management and resource recovery. Our target is to expand the market of our recycling services and compost products as high quality choice for environmentally friendly waste management and fertilizer.
