Energy Exports Generate $90m

August 7 , 2021

Ethiopia earned a record-high 90.5 million dollars from the export of electricity to neighbouring Sudan and Djibouti last year. The figure represents a significant jump from the previous record of 70 million dollars generated the year before. Last week, Ethiopian Electric Power (EEP) disclosed it is undergoing preparations to sell an additional 1,000mw of power to neighbouring nations, particularly Sudan. Ethiopia's generating capacity remains at 4,300mw, 90pc of which comes from hydropower dams located on nine of its major rivers. The completion of the Grand Ethiopia Renaissance Dam (GERD) is expected to double power output once all of its 15 turbines begin to operate.
