Ethiopia taps Danish wind nous
Roadmap for onshore project development part of bilateral programme
The Danish Energy Agency is assisting Ethiopian authorities to develop an independent power producer (IPP) roadmap for onshore wind projects.
Under the Accelerating Wind Power Generation in Ethiopia (AWPGE) programme the two countries are exchanging experiences on how to support large-scale wind power investment through political and regulatory frameworks.
The Ethiopian authorities will develop a one-stop-model for wind projects inspired by the Danish example so that IPPs only have to deal with one public authority for project approvals and licenses.
A tender design and a wind project financial workshop will also be organised in Addis Ababa.
