This thesis work describes Ghana`s renewable energy policies and the barriers the policy is facing. It further explains the various renewable energy policies used in the world and how Ghana can learn from those polices, especially the policies from Cape Verde. The method used in this thesis work was a desktop research to come out with the various polices that Ghana can implement and an interview with one of the experts in renewable energy in the energy commission of Ghana. The outcome of the study was that-Ghana has some policies in place such as feed in tariff, tax exemptions, biofuel and heat obligation, reduction in sales, renewable energy portfolio and public investments but it also faces some barriers in the re-newable energy sector and those barriers are land access, structure of the energy sector, transmission access, lack of education and infrastructure, assistance from the government and banks. Despite those barriers Ghana can still achieve their target in 2020 by learning from Cape Verde.
