dc.description.abstract In this paper, the major sources of energy such as hydro, fossil fuels, natural gas, biomass and wind will be assessed. Apart from the existing Akosombo and Kpong Dams with a combined capacity of 1080 MW, the Aboadze Thermal Plant with a capacity of 660 MW but currently producing 300 MW, and other IndependentPower Producers (IPPs), 18 medium hydro sites and 70 mini to micro hydro sites, capable of generating about 1322 MW, have been identified by the Volta River Authority. The exploitation of these energy resources will enable the country meet its energy needs in the future. This will also provide cheap energy to realize Nkrumah's dreams as outlined in Fig. 1. Also, the three energy goals set by the Government to enhance the success of its policies - accessibility to modern affordable energy for all, availability in terms of continuity of supply and quality of service, and acceptability in terms of social and environmental goals will be realized. en_US
