Abstract

Despite increasing user and private sector participation in donor-funded renewable energy projects in Ghana, it is unclear how user participation and the dynamics between international and local actors influence renewable energy adoption. This research fills this gap by adopting a socio-technical systems framework that combines the inclusive innovation and intermediation bodies of literature. The research used three solar and two biogas projects implemented in Ghana as case studies. This research advances how scholarship should rethink the assessment of innovation processes to prevent situations whereby innovation policies facilitate technology dissemination, yet with limited adoption by users.
