Ethiopia Power Sector - Energy Project (02)

The project development objectives were to increase the efficiency and sustainability of Ethiopia's power sector, and to increase electricity use for economic growth and improved quality of life; and to improve utilization efficiency of rural renewable energy. Progress on these objectives was measured by Ethiopia achieving by the end of 2002: total system failures of no more than 3 per year; capacity to connect 250, 000 new customers to the grid as the distribution network is rehabilitated and expanded (under a separate project); 100% of new industrial applicants for power connections will be satisfied; and (iv) to inventory biomass stock in Northern regions.
