According to Tetra Tech International Development study titled “Regional Energy Bureaus in Ethiopia: Needs Assessment Report and Action Plan”, for Ethiopia to meet its universal electrification access target by 2025 as laid out in the National Electrification Program (NEP 2.0) the annual supply of quality certified products must increase by an average of 12 per cent per annum from 2021 to 2025. This translates to an additional expenditure of USD117 million per annum for the next five years.

There are over 26,000 primary schools and 15,000 health posts with no access to electricity. In addition, about 90 hospitals, providing the most comprehensive health services, are still not powered and cannot provide optimum services.

The USD40 million Development Bank of Ethiopia (DBE) credit facility for solar provides loans to microfinance institutions (MFIs) operating in Amhara, Oromia, SNNP and Tigray regions.
