The government of Ethiopia has invested 162 million dollars to address Addis Abeba’s unreliable power supply. Ethiopia Electric Utility, is taking measures to meet the ever growing electricity demand of 3.6 million or so city residents. Despite resolutions made by the government, the capital is experiencing increased blackouts, and the citizens are expressing their grievances about the recurrent power outages, 

Yared Dinku, 31, provides photocopying, typing, printing and internet services at his stationery shop on Mauritius Street near Gofa Mazoria. His business is entirely dependent on electricity. “I don’t have any backup power,” Yared says, “the electric supply is my only option.”Residents and small business owners like him are exasperated by the electric outages and blackouts that have become all too familiar.

Ethiopia’s economic success has attracted widespread attention. Its GDP grew by 10.5 percent annually between 2006 and 2016, outpacing East Africa’s 5.4 percent growth rate over the same time period. As extreme poverty declined by nearly 40 percent in the country between 2000 and 2011, Ethiopia is quickly emerging as a model of how rapid development can swiftly improve the quality of life for millions. This economic boom has also raised living standards by stimulating rapid, dramatic changes in Ethiopia’s power generation sector. In particular, Ethiopia’s ruling coalition — the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front — has focused on exploiting the country’s immense renewable energy resources, especially its hydro and wind potential.  Its electric grid, with the highest installed capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa at 4.5 GW, is one of few in the world almost entirely based on renewable resources. With its pledge to cut emissions by 64 percent by 2030 following the Paris Climate Summit, Ethiopia has bucked the stereotype of rapidly developing countries opting for cheaper fossil fuels to satisfy growing demand.

Ethiopia has set a target to achieve universal access to electricity by 2025. Achieving universal access to electricity for a developing country is not only about providing electricity services to under-served population, but also about appropriately matching the peoples' and the country's general development needs. Ethiopia has launched its own version of universal access to electricity program – the National Electrification Program (NEP).
