Biomass energy is likely to continue to dominate as a prime energy source in Ghana. This phenomenon, together with the steady development of biofuels as the emerging fuel, has spurred the interest and need to ensure the sustainable supply of bioenergy. This policy paper, which is in five chapters, addresses the policy issues and recommendations for achieving the overall objectives of the Government in ensuring sustainability of the bioenergy sector. Chapter one is devoted to woodfuels and chapter two dwells on biofuels. Chapter three and chapter four cover energy from biogas waste and electricity from biomass respectively while the fifth and final chapter concludes with a summary of the implementation programme.
