Partners Project

AGI Energy Service Center

Background

The importance of renewable energy usage in businesses worldwide is well-known and documented. However, its adoption still remains low in Ghana due to uncertainty about the capability of local renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) solution suppliers, avoidance of first-mover risks and lack of adequate financing. With the country’s objective to achieve 10% renewable energy component in the national energy mix by 2030, there is the need to make renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions readily available and accessible to industrial and domestic users.

The Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) Energy Service Centre (ESC) was set up to be a one-stop shop for renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) training and consultancy services, especially relating to the adoption of RE/EE among AGI members and the larger Ghanaian public. The Centre is hosted by the AGI, with technical and financial support from the German Development Cooperation.

AGI Obaasima

Who We Are

The OBAASIMA scheme was developed by the project ‘Affordable Nutritious Foods for Women (ANF4W)’ which is a partnership between the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) and the private sector in Ghana. The OBAASIMA scheme is coordinated by Association of Ghana Industries & Ghana Standard Authority who are also in charge of the seal registration process on this website.

Target Group

Despite national efforts, Ghanaians don’t receive enough vitamins and minerals from their diet. Therefore, micronutrient deficiency among women of reproductive age is still highly prevalent. The OBAASIMA scheme promotes fortified food products which are made available to all women of reproductive age between 15 and 49 years to increase their intake of micronutrients
