Ethiopia Integrating Off-grid Technologies into Electrification Planning (Case Study)
For this Case Study Series, GET.transform has worked with governments, companies and industry experts to find realworld examples of where renewable energy solutions are truly working viably, to create value for communities, boost employment, and achieve national objectives. This case study features Ethiopia and draws on the experience of the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy, its Directorate of Electrification, Regional Energy Bureaus and the Ethiopian Electric Utility, who have cooperated with development partners such as the World Bank’s ESMAP, the AfDB and GIZ, with their support on the planning dimension and Ethiopia’s off-grid electrification agenda. The identified case studies focus on the one hand on renewable energy industry solutions built on revenue-driven business models, as well as on best practice regulatory frameworks that have solved common challenges in the development of the rural electrification and off-grid market. With a focus on Africa, the case studies aim to present policymakers and stakeholders with encouraging evidence from the renewable energy world.
