The promotion of small and medium-scale enterprise (SMEs) participation in institutional biogas technology penetration has been identified as one of the five key priority energy related National Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in Ghana. This is in line with the country’s pursuit for low carbon development options which is identified in the national climate change policy (2014) as well as the sustainable development objectives articulated in the Ghana Shared Growth Development Agenda (GSGDA). To bring biogas as a low carbon energy source to a significant higher level in Ghana, the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) action plan intends to establish institutional biogas systems for 200 boarding schools, hospitals and prisons. At least 400 biogas systems have been built in Ghana, pre-dominantly using the fixed-dome, floating drum and Puxin technologies. The main reason to build a biogas systems is to improve the sanitation situation. Although there are several issues with existing biogas systems, many of these systems are functioning well. To ensure long term sustainability, specific attention has been paid to;
> Development and enforcement of standards for biogas digesters and quality control of system design, construction and maintenance;
> Financial commitment from buyers / beneficiaries throughout the system lifetime, ensuring both maintenance and proper operation.
