For Ethiopia, the most comparative advantage in its energy generation needs is hydropower, as it is blessed both by topography and water resources. The key to realizing ambitions that have been set is rooted in energy. The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, (GERD), is under construction near the border with the Sudan, where all tributaries of the Abay join the main stern of the river. This consequently makes the location ideal to maximize electricity generation.

“It is time for our three countries of Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan to nurture the narrative towards building peace, cooperation, mutual co-existence and development of all our people without harming one another. Nile in general and the GERD project are opportune for such a higher purpose.” said Prime Minister of Ethiopia.
