Total Energy Consumption

In 2019, total energy consumption per capita is around 0.4 toe, including 95 kWh of electricity.

Total energy consumption is increasing steadily, albeit at a rate 3.5 times slower than economic growth (3.3%/year on average since 2010, against around 118%/year for the GDP).

Renewable in % Electricity Production

Ethiopia plans to develop 25 GW of renewables by 2030 under its Climate Resilient Green Economy Initiative (CRGE), of which 22 GW are hydropower, 2 GW are wind, and 1 GW is geothermal.

The MoWIE has been contemplating the possibility of introducing a feed-in tariff system. A draft bill was prepared and submitted to the MoWIE by EEA in 2012, but it has not been passed into law yet due to the lack of private sector participation. The revision process is still in progress.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

According to its revised NDC (January 2021), Ethiopia plans to reduce its economy wide GHG emissions by 12.4% in 2030 compared to a BaU scenario. This is equivalent to a reduction of 51 MtCO2eq (BaU level of 412 MtCO2eq in 2030). The reduction could be increased to 53.5% depending on international support.
