Ethiopia's efforts to increase energy efficiency and diversify its hydro-dependent energy mix through renewable energy got a 50 million US dollars boost from the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) committee meetings last week when Ethiopia's investment plan under the Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program for Low Income Countries (SREP) was endorsed in full by CIF committee members.

The decision came during the week-long CIF committee meetings in Washington, D.C. from 30 April to 4 May. As implementing agency of the CIF, the African Development Bank (AfDB) was there to bring African interests to the table.

Ethiopia's plan calls for AfDB technical support and investment to implement the Assela wind farm project and Phase II of the Aluto Langano geothermal project. The Bank expects to channel USD 23 million of total SREP financing to Ethiopia.

"The plan will help unlock Ethiopia's renewable energy potential and share some of the risks. Funds will be applied to technology transfer to reduce the cost of wind energy and to initial drilling and exploration activities of geothermal," stated Gosaye Mengistie Abayneh, Director of Energy Study and Development in the Ethiopian Ministry of Energy.
