  • Description:

    Ethiopia’s National Electrification Program (2019) sets forth ambitious plans for universal access to electricity by 2025, with an expected 35 percent of new connections to involve off-grid technology.  Mini grids and private sector, including cooperatives, are major planned elements for realizing these ambitions.  The National Child Mini-grid Project of Ethiopia under the GEF Africa Mini grids Program seeks to support the implementation of the National Electrification Program of Ethiopia which is an ambitious plan focused on bringing the reliable power system resilient to and demands with upgraded infrastructure in Ethiopia, while also achieving global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions. 

    The Africa Mini-grid Program currently implemented in 21 African countries is a country-led technical assistance program for mini grids whose objective is to support access to clean energy by increasing the financial viability, and promoting scaled-up commercial investment through deploying renewable energy mini grids in Africa, with a focus on cost-reduction levers and innovative business models. It is complemented by a ‘regional platform’ acting as the advocacy, coordination and knowledge management hub for the program.  The AMP will achieve these ends through targeted interventions, which are common to all of the national projects of the AMP, in policy and regulations to support the roll-out of mini grids, advancement of cooperative-led delivery models, scaled-up financing with de-risking, and digital and data management to ensure cost effective delivery of electricity services. 

    Building upon extensive recent and ongoing work that MoWE and other development partners have already been carrying out, the National Child Mini-grid Project of Ethiopia under the AMP will improve the financial viability and reduce the investment risk of solar PV mini grids. This will be done through enhancing mini grid revenues, reducing costs, and raising the efficiency and competence of the local mini grid market.  Financial sustainability and revenue enhancement will take place from project’s support for productive use, benefitting both mini grid developers and the citizen entrepreneurs (especially women) whose business prospects and livelihoods will be improved as a result of electricity access, access to finance and capacity building through the Project.
