Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia's National Electrification Program 2.0
Government of Ethiopia
In November 2017, the Government of Ethiopia launched the National Electrification Program (NEP),
that represents the action plan for achieving universal electricity access nationwide by 2025, in a strategic and comprehensive as well as efficient and transparent manner, for the benefit of all its citizens. By 2025, 65 percent of access provision is targeted with grid solutions and 35 percent with off-grid technologies (solar off-grid and mini-grids). While the Ethiopian Electric Utility (EEU) will be the primary implementing agent for the grid program, off-grid scale-up will see the coordination and partnership of public and private efforts.
Tackling the access challenge with the coordinated deployment of all technology options allowsthe achievement of three important goals for the nation: (i) balancing efficiency and equity in access delivery, (ii) maximizing the reach of the electrification program while minimizing the time required for all Ethiopians to have access to electricity services, and (iii) supporting economic growth and human development.
