ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of HPI Technologies to get political risk insurance from the U.S. government for its natural-gas-fired power plant in Ghana. During his trip to Ghana, U.S. president Barack Obama said that the U.S. would support public-private partnerships to invest in better roads and electricity in the country. However, HPI's application to get help from the U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corp., was rejected due to greenhouse gas emissions associated with project.
