COVID-19 puts our used to be life momentarily on hold until we find and adapt to the next new normal ahead of us. While it may disrupt our normal life style, we should not allow ourselves to sit back and wait for everything to happen on us.
Once we ensure our health and safety, we have so many life issues to reflect. For the youth who happens to be in the universities and colleges, yet at home now, and the new graduates and practitioners, it is time for you to reflect and reinforce your academic choices and professional career to a new hiogher level. A wealth of online resources, including coursera.org and edx.org and a host of webinars are at your disposal.

Over the years, one of the key questions eepBp get asked all the time by foreign based companies which have a vested interest to join the Ethiopian energy sector(On-grid-off-grid, petroleum and natural gas, Cooking solutions, environmental sustaibility and so on ) has been which local company they can collaborate or partner with.
eepBp believes it is the time for the local energy and power sector players to raise the game and benefit from collaboration and partnership both with regional and international players that have an established regional and global reach with investment, technology knowhow, diversified solutions, more complex value chain linkages, larger marketing potential and financial breadth.
You are failing to collaborate with the right partner does mean you are not moving the needle enough to solve Ethiopia’s energy poverty and scale your business for more significance.
While eepBp advises local energy companies to virtualize your marketing and public relations segment of your respective companies, we also would like to support in promoting your business in our website and social pages free of charge for a definite time. Once we have the right contact information, we will also share to interested parties as the request comes for a one-on-one discussion between them and yourself.
You are expected to share basic information including Company name, Contact details (website, email address, phone no, CEO or marketing director name,) and a short introduction of your company’s specialization and what specific partnership you are looking for. You also need to state your willingness for eepBp to market the shared information on your behalf.
The opportunity to receiev your request will be available from 1st May – 31 May 2020. The opportunity window will be closed after the deadline.
A similar opportunity will also be open for regional and international energy companies which have an interest to join the Ethiopian energy market soon. Keep posted.

Rural electrification of agriculture in Ethiopia is an important part of a resilient response to and recovery from economic devastation wrought by COVID-19 and the East Africa locust infestation.
A new RMI analysis demonstrates a US$4 billion economic case for a national program in Ethiopia to promote the productive uses of electricity by examining six key agricultural value chains: irrigating horticulture, grain milling, injera baking, bread baking, milk cooling, and coffee washing.
RMI’s new insight brief explores the opportunity for mutually assured success among agricultural transformation and rural electrification efforts. In collaboration with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI); the Ethiopian Ministry of Water, Irrigation, and Energy (MoWIE); and the Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA), RMI’s new brief outlines the synergies between rural electrification and agricultural productivity, processing, and businesses, and the value that can flow from closely linking the two.

Now more than ever, Ethiopia must undertake these efforts in order to increase resilience in the country’s economy, create opportunity for a large number of farmers, and build off-grid energy systems to provide universal electricity access.
