Message from The Director
A promising energy future for Ethiopia
The electricity sector’s challenges & opportunities is one of the prime subjects that have been pre occupying the thoughts of many governments across our region and even beyond. Smooth development of the electricity industry is indeed our challenge but with promising opportunities too.
The impact of the continuing upsurges of price of oil is posing an economic challenge to non oil producing countries like ours. This situation is worse for some countries that use fuel for much of their electric power generation needs. Fuel oil related political and environmental challenges are yet another even bigger dimension of the energy issue.
It is with this background that the direction concerning; governance of the energy sector, security of supply, financial and institutional viability of energy institutions, energy pricing, share of renewable energy, energy efficiency and conservation are stipulated in our national energy policy (currently is under revision to argument the advent of new sector challenges and new opportunities as well).
