Ms. Doris Edem Agbevivi is an energy analyst with over seven years of experience working with EY and the Energy Commission of Ghana. She has spent the past six years with the Energy Commission working closely with energy sector stakeholders in mainstreaming and promoting energy access, sustainable development, technical energy research, planning, and informing policymaking in Ghana. Doris has also participated in and led technical knowledge exchange events in Ghana and internationally, both on behalf of the Energy Commission and as a consultant.
Ms. Doris Edem Agbevivi graduated from the University of Ghana Business School with honours in B.Sc. Business Administration (Banking and Finance Option). She is currently the Coordinator of the Drive Electric Initiative in Ghana; an e-mobility initiative of the Energy Commission aimed at driving the productive use of electricity while ushering in an era of green and sustainable energy use. Under this initiative, she organised Ghana’s first e-mobility conference and exhibition to bring together major stakeholders to deliberate as well as exhibit electric vehicles for test drives and public awareness creation.

Doris has been a passionate advocate for clean and sustainable energy use on both the national and international levels. In addition to organising Ghana's first-ever e-mobility conference and exhibition in September 2021, Doris also organised Ghana's first public charging forum in March 2022 and is leading an EV baseline survey as well as working on regulations for charging stations.
