Wind Energy Applications in Eritrea

The project is to pilot wind energy technology in the wind rich areas (Assab, Edi, Gahro, Gizgiza, Rahaita, Berasole, Beylul and Dekamhare) of the country. Upon the achievement of feasible results, the aim is to replicate it in other parts of the country. The project implementation is expected to improve the rural communities livelihoods by providing access to sustainable energy services and contribute to reuction of greenhouse gases. Furthermore, the project is expected to remove the identified barriers and contribute to an informed, equipped and sustained policy framework in wind energy adoption and dissemination.
