Student Aden Hussien, an eighth grader at Tulu Wabi elementary school in Borena Zone, Oromia state, generated electricity using biofuel and distributed it to 16 households, according to regional state media.
Student Aden, a resident of Webiti Kebele, Wachale Woreda, Borena Zone, generated biofuel from manure and dung from various animals, which he converted into electricity by connecting 16 people using wire and plastic; his work was inspired by model work he saw in his area as well as his own creativity efforts. In addition to his own consumption, Aden earns around 1,600 birr per month from supplying electricity to his customers, he told regional media.
Mesu Hussein, Aden’s mother, said he was her sixth child and had a natural desire to learn new things. The zonal water and energy bureau has promised to provide all necessary support, including materials, to ensure Aden’s innovations are successful.
