The Ethiopian Energy Authority has approved a directive that would allow the production of electricity for private consumption. The directive requires interested applicants to submit a land lease, technical specifications of their facility, and environmental and social impact assessment reports to apply for a permit. The directive also requires them to produce a minimum of 200kw and prohibits commercialisation. It is part of the national electrification plan to increase households with access to electricity to 100pc in five years. Close to 65pc of households are expected to be connected with the national grid while off-grid solutions cover the remaining area. The certification service is provided at the federal level by the Authority, but regional states have also been granted the mandate.
