The Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, Ulla Tørnæs, and the Ethiopian Minister of Water, Irrigation and Energy, Dr. Seleshi Bekele Awulachew, have signed an agreement expanding the Danish-Ethiopian strategic sector cooperation and partnership on energy to the end of 2020.
The programme “Accelerating Wind Power Generation in Ethiopia” supports the capacity building of the Ethiopian energy sector to a gradual transition to wind energy. The Danish support specifically provide wind measurements, and the expertise of the Danish Energy Agency concerning public procurement of wind-farms, and cost-efficient expansion of wind energy in Ethiopia. The Danish system operator Energinet.dk will be working together with their Ethiopian counterparts on large-scale inclusion of wind energy in the Ethiopian energy system.
