The Bui Dam stands as a testament to engineering prowess and sustainable energy solutions in Ghana. Located on the Black Volta River in the Banda District of the Brong-Ahafo Region, this multi-purpose hydroelectric dam plays a pivotal role in Ghana’s energy landscape.

Completed in 2013, the Bui Dam harnesses the immense power of the Black Volta River to generate electricity, with a total installed capacity of 400 megawatts. Beyond electricity generation, it serves as a crucial tool for flood control, irrigation, and enhancing water supply for various purposes, including agriculture and domestic use. The dam’s reservoir spans approximately 440 square kilometres, creating a vast water body that not only ensures reliable electricity production but also supports fisheries and recreational activities, benefiting local communities and the region at large.

As Ghana continues its journey towards sustainable development and energy independence, the Bui Dam stands as a symbol of progress, resilience, and the transformative power of clean energy infrastructure.
