Renowned gas infrastructure engineer and Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Gas Company Dr Ben K.D Asante has described natural gas as a good source of energy that is crucial to the industrialisation agenda of Ghana.
According to Dr Asante, considering the current impact of climate change, countries across the world need to act quickly and make efforts to help mitigate the impact of climate change and ensure a sustainable development model.
He said it is imperative that Ghana does not only deal with the challenge of acquiring ever-increasing amounts of energy to continue economic growth but also make sure that its energy stores increasingly come from renewable methods that are sustainable for the environment.
Dr Asante was speaking at the Ghana Oil and Gas Conference organised by the Ghana Upstream Chamber in Accra, the capital of Ghana.
The conference was under the theme: ‘Transitioning to a Low Carbon Economy’.
Ghana has, so far, made remarkable progress in its clean energy transition, becoming one of the countries to have investments in solar and other renewable sources of energy.
