Tariff calculation training for policymakers from Ghana

Dr. Jacobs executed a 4-day capacity building workshop on feed-in tariff rate calculation for policy makers and regulators in Ghana. Based on a comprehensive and in-depth discussion of all important feed-in tariff design features, various feed-in tariff calculation methodologies were discussed and assessed. All input parameters for calculating payment levels were presented and benchmarked against international best practise. Insights were then applied to five power generation technologies: small hydro, wind, PV, biomass and waste-to-energy. The workshop, which was part of a World Bank project, was executed by Dr. Jacobs as director “renewable energy” at the consulting firm IFOK.
