    Abstract In recent years, the discovery of oil and gas together with Ghana’s quest for sustainable development has led to the positioning of renewable energy as one of the core technologies for power generation. The National Energy Policy aims at ensuring that renewable energy constitutes 10 % of Ghana’s total energy mix by 2030. The United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA) undertook a study that aims at comprehensively assessing the uptake of solar energy in Ghana, exploring the potential and the enabling environment needed to ensure that green businesses operating in the solar energy business are profitable, as well as making recommendations on the enabling environment required for the scale up of solar installations and use in Ghana.
