Background: The Government of Ghana, with financial support from the Government of the Swiss Confederation, sought to implement and develop a database management system software. The Ghana Energy Development and Access Project (GEDAP) is a structured local participation program for the Electricity Supply Industry (ESI) to increase local participation in it’s value chain to improve efficiency of electricity and clean energy distribution in the country.The project required that the minimum level of local content and local participation in all aspects of the ESI value chain was targeted to be at least 60% by the end of 2025.
Solution: Bewsys designed and developed a database management system for the appropriate collection of data, information analysis and effective monitoring and reporting generation.The type of data collated was on factors such as electricity transmission, electricity distribution, electricity sales service; and conventional power supply to help operationalise the ESI’s local content and participation target,
Impact: The introduction of the Local Content Database Management System software increased the attraction of local value-added investments into the power sector as well as increased economic activities. This contributes to building strong and transparent institutions, clean and affordable energy, and enhancing economic growth within the local industries.
