dc.description.abstract This country study provides a breakdown of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Ghana by sector along with current energy efficiency measures. Petroleum is the main energy consumed in Ghana, having overtaken biomass (charcoal and firewood) in 2009. The Agriculture, Forestry, and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector is the largest contributor of GHG emissions (2012), followed by the Energy sector and Waste and Industrial Processes. The paper provides a table of National Energy Efficiency Targets in GHG Emissions Reductions, as well as a table of the regulatory frameworks in force. A final table provides a summary of Barriers to Energy Efficiency Implementation. en
