Ghana - Energy Efficiency and Demand-side Management

Metadata Updated: June 15, 2021

The Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management (EEDSM) project seeks to improve building and appliance efficiency and reduce energy wastage through the introduction of standards and labels, energy audits and outreach activities. EEDSM beneficiaries include the entire population with access to electricity, an estimated 4.3 million households with 19.6 million people. The EEDSM Project consists of four activities: the Development and Enforcement of Standards and Labels activity, the Improved Energy Auditing activity, the Education and Public Information activity, and the Demand Side Management activity. The evaluation of the EEDSM project will address the following questions for each of the four interventions designed to reduce energy waste and increase the reserve margin between electricity supply and peak demand. These interventions include (1) a rollout of energy efficiency standards, (2) implementation of the pre-tertiary school curriculum and public information on use of efficient appliances with standards and labels via different media platforms, (3) implementation of an energy auditing and retrofitting activity and an intervention to establish two sustainable energy services centers (SESCs) that will train and certify energy auditors for the country, and (4) installing energy-efficient LED street lights. The methodological approach for the performance evaluation of EEDSM relies in tracking key outcomes over time, qualitative data analysis, pre-post analysis, and simulations. The impact evaluation will assess the impact of the R2R&R intervention on the electricity consumption. We will measure impacts relative to the pre-treatment period using an Interrupted Time Series (ITS) method which involves comparing outcomes before an intervention is implemented with those after. The sample for the analysis of outcomes from administrative utility data will include the intervention buildings. Evaluation questions include: 1. Have the EEDSM interventions changed consumption of electricity by individual customers? 2. Did the availability and purchases of more energy-efficient appliances increase when standards were implemented? To what extent can these changes be attributed to the new standards? 3. To what extent has the R2R&R intervention affected electricity use and bill payment rates? 4. Were project activities implemented as designed? How did implementation (in terms of objectives, activities, and beneficiaries) deviate from the original logic driving the investment, and why? How did changes in implementation affect project performance? What were the implementation successes and challenges? 5. Were improvements in project outcomes sustained after the end of the compact? What sustainability planning was done during implementation, and why? What are the critical institutional factors that affected their sustainability?
