  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Electricity (MoWIE) is in charge of the development of energy policies, strategies and programmes outside the oil sector.

    The Ministry of Mines, Petroleum and Natural Gas supervises the mineral and petroleum policies and promotes the country's oil potential.

    The Second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) is the current development plan ...

  • Energy Companies


    In 2013, EEPCO, Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation, the national public electricity company, was unbundled into two separate entities: EEP, Ethiopian Electric Power, and EEU, Ethiopian Electric Utility.

  • Energy Supply


    The country's hydroelectric potential is among the highest in the region: the economically exploitable resources amount to about 160 TWh for a technical potential of 650 TWh. Geothermal resources are estimated to amount to roughly 4 000 MW. Hydrocarbon reserves are limited and are barely used (28 bcm for gas and just 0.41 mbl for oil end of 2017). However, due to the geological similarity ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices have declined on average in the last 10 years. In 2017, prices were US$1.8c/kWh for industrial customers and US$1.6c/kWh for households. They remain among the lowest in the world, but will progressively increase from the end of 2018. Indeed, low prices are currently a hurdle to large investment in the sector.


  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita is around 0.5 toe, including 99 kWh of electricity (2017).

    Total energy consumption is increasing steadily, however at a rate more than three times slower than economic growth (3.3%/year on average since 2010, against around 10%/year for the GDP).


    Total energy consumption is mainly ...
