Prior to joining Transcarbon as Lead Low-Carbon Technologies Expert for Ghana, Senegal, and Angola, and Senior Consultant on Sustainable Energy and Environmental Management, Eric has managed several projects including an energy efficiency project funded by the United Nations Development Programme, Global Environment Facility (UNDP-GEF) in Ghana. The project entitled “Promoting Energy Efficient Appliances and Transformation of the Refrigerating Appliances Market” sought to improve the energy efficiency of appliances marketed and used in Ghana and ultimately reduce Ghana’s energy related CO2 and Ozone Depleting Substances. Eric led the project team to pilot a Refrigerating Appliance Rebate Scheme to recover old and high-energy consuming appliances. As part of the scheme, customers who replace their old refrigerators receive a discount on the purchase of new energy efficient refrigerators.

He also worked at the Ministry of Energy in Ghana for over 8 years where he was involved in program design and energy policy. His expertise in the energy domain involves policy development, energy efficiency, energy access to rural communities and sustainable development.
