Abstract—Renewable energies represent a foundation to steer the energy system in the direction of sustainability and supply security in Ghana. The country has a huge undeveloped potential in the field of renewable energy. While Ghana has committed itself to universal electricity access by 2020, the real challenge is the capacity to meet this goal and, most important, to ensure that supply is reliable and adequate. This paper outlines the state of current electricity demand, supply gap and CVVV V the major impediments to resolve the supply bottlenecks to meet demand. The paper again discusses current Renewable energy situation of Ghana and sustainable development strategy by the Year 2020. The current status and future prospects of Renewable Energy in Ghana are also addressed in the paper. Conclusion was drawn on the role of the Government and private investors on the Renewable Energy development in the Country.
