This Ethiopian fiscal year(2012E.C), Ethiopia generates 15,192.11 Gigawatt-hours of energy as per the press release from generation operation executive office of Ethiopian Electric Power, EEP.


The utility planned 16,165.48 Gigawatt-hours of energy and generated 6.20% less. The decline of the energy production is attributed to 

  • lower electricity supply request
  • lower night consumption
  • delay in Aysha wind power plant and Genale Dawa III hydro power plant
  • Spar part limitation

The utility stated that there was no supply shortage this season and there was a 9.5% energy production increase from the privous year. 

Out of the 21 generation power plants, Tana Beles, Gilgel Gibe I,Gilgel GibeII, Melka wakena, Tis AbayII, Koka, AwashII, Amerti Neshie, and Repi  Generates more than planned for this year. The utility planned 17,307.00 Gigawatt-hours of energy the coming fiscal year.


If we take the current number of Ethiopians as 110 million people and the 15,000 Gigawatt-hours per year as it is (without any consideration of export, waste, other energy sources and self consumption), it does mean 136KW per person per year which is a very small figure.
