Ministry of Energy, Ghana / State Secretariat for Economic Affairs of the Embassy of Switzerland (SECO) - Development of Local Content Database Management System Software For local participation programme of the Electricity Supply Industry (ESI)

Project Detail

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.

Bewsys has been able to deliver what was expected based on the agreed timelines. The inception mission in the Philippines has been successful, and discussions with various stakeholders have been fruitful. Bewsys showed eagerness to know more about the unique requirements of the portal upon hearing it from firsthand users. They were able to accommodate various questions, comments, suggestions, and recommendations from different stakeholders, mainly from the government side, with each agency with unique requirements.

Bewsys staff are results-oriented and adapted a lot of tasks, and were flexible to ensure the solution they provided was the best. A feather in their cap!

Association of African Universities

There is a great need for digital systems development in Africa. I think it will be essential to continue supporting institutions such as Bewsys so they can do these jobs better. Also, we need to think about solutions that can be deployed quickly to support other institutions where there is a match in need.
