Driving forward the energy transition in Ghana by implementing sustainable energy projects with high impact, lowering the electricity demand using LED lighting and increasing the supply of electricity using PV Solar: this is our goal.
Dutch & Co. has been offering its clients and stakeholders sustainable energy solutions since 2011 and places high value on social impact in addition to the positive impact on climate and environment.
Saving money whilst Saving our Planet.
Technological innovation continues to lower the prices of renewable energy, making solar and LED electricity cheaper than fossil fuels. Low-cost renewable energies have the potential to boost economies, enhance energy security, minimise the impact of climate change and promote investment in climate-positive areas. In addition, renewable energy sources create demand for capital investment, generate revenue for landowners, offer low-cost electricity sources, and also provide local jobs for rural and remote people where industry and jobs may be scant.
Getting it right empowers partners and organisations to have access to cleaner, more affordable, and more reliable electricity and such remains the ambition of Dutch and Company Limited (Dutch & Co.).
With its European office in the Netherlands and permanently operating as a registered and fully licensed Ghanaian company in Accra since 1993, the company has been honoured with the 2020 Solar Energy Award during Total’s Contractor’s Soiree and the Best Renewable Energy Company of the Year in 2018 at the Ghana Energy Awards.
Dutch & Co. specialises in the development and execution of climate-friendly LED and photovoltaic solar projects for businesses in the country. With a mission to bridge the gap between the demand and supply of renewable, affordable and reliable energy. Its customers are mainly commercial and industrial companies such as banks, factories, retail centres, hospitals, hotels, office buildings, processing plants including schools, churches and non-profit organisations. These institutions suffer the most from high grid electricity costs and power outages that lead to interruptions and instability. By providing clean and stable solar power, Dutch & Co. promotes the creation of new jobs while having a positive economic, environmental and social impact. Its customers also save money and increase their economic performance.
Achieving the UNDP’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – which includes the need for affordable and clean energy – is expected to meet the Paris Agreement requirements on climate change. Projects executed by Dutch & Co. across Ghana align with the goal to increase the global percentage of renewable energy and double the improvement in energy efficiency through affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy by end 2025.
For every client, the demand for electricity is first reduced with the installation of energy-saving LED lighting, resulting in up to 70% savings. The supply of electricity is then increased with the installation of an affordable, clean and sustainable turnkey PV solar system. Dutch & Co. offers integrated solutions and, with its in-house team of well-trained and experienced technicians, takes responsibility for the development, engineering, procurement, and construction while executing the role as operations and maintenance partners, and arrange for funding in case of need.
Dutch & Co. approaches the solar market in Ghana and ECOWAS broadly and takes responsibility for the full scope of projects. Its reputation remains unadulterated and the success stories in relation to energy efficiency and renewable energy are perceptible in their projects some of its esteemed customers such us Total Energy, Cargill Ghana, Royal Senchi Resort, Unilever Ghana, Kotoka International Airport, CWT Ghana Limited, Standard Chartered Bank, Zenith Bank, Fanmilk and Rigworld. With this strong client base, the company’s operations in the Sub-Saharan region are also made possible by strong partnerships with the Ghanaian government and industry stakeholders such as the Africa Centre for Energy Policy, Ghana Standards Authority, ECG, GRIDCo, Energy Commission, EPA, VRA, and GIPC.
With more than 100 projects in LED and more than 40 in PV Solar, the commitment to boost the demand for clean energy is well on course. The PV Solar installations with a total installed capacity of 2,954 kWp produce 4,038,159kWh of PV Solar annually with a corresponding annual CO2 emission reduction of 1,736 tonnes. Indeed, more countries are reducing their greenhouse gas emissions and reaping the social and economic benefits of renewable energy. By working together and applying evidence-led approaches, local economies are beginning to see an increase in private investment in the renewable energy market. Ghanaian institutions are well equipped to transition to the clean energy economy to respond to energy and climate challenges.
Dutch & Co. implements the complete project; from development, engineering, procurement, construction, operation, and maintenance, while offering outright purchase and full financing without any upfront payment. The payback period can be as short as two (2) years depending on the project!
