Ghana has been singled out for praise by energy experts at the on-going United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development for developing a national action plan for sustainable energy.

The Sustainable Energy For All concept was first launched in September last year to seek solutions for clean energy.

Some 1.3 billion people across the world reportedly do not have electricity to light their homes or for business.

Majority of Ghana’s population especially in rural communities rely on wood, charcoal or animal waste to cook, and as a result suffer from toxic smoke that causes lung disease and death.

Deputy Minister of Energy, Inusah Fuseini told Joy News interventions put in place by government are aimed at addressing some of the challenges faced by most Ghanaians.

According to him, the government is piloting a programme to replace kerosene lanterns with solar lanterns.

The move, he said will help the NPA to implement subsidies on kerosene.
