The committee is made up of members from various sectors and ministries. The committee forms part of the governments’ initiative to collaborate with each Independent Power Producers (IPP) and Gas Suppliers (GS) to help solve the current energy issues in the country.

In his speech, Mr Ofori-Atta said: “the purpose of the Steering Committee is to take responsibility for the consultation process with the IPPs and GSs over the coming months, with the objective of ensuring a sustainable energy partnership with each IPP and GS.”

He said the Finance and Energy Ministries have been engaging with IPP and GS representatives since August 2019 to develop solutions that result in a fair outcome for all stakeholders.
