Date: December 8-12, 2014
Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
With the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), this partnership exchange was an introductory activity to engage partner regulators on energy efficiency, conservation programs, and tariff methodologies. Discussions were based on key elements of Ethiopia’s 2014 Energy Proclamation as well as the Ethiopia Energy Authority’s (EEA) Framework Strategy to support the EEA’s capacity as they strive to fulfill the mandates listed under the energy sector reform policy.
Regulators used the activity to identify capacity building needs and next steps for EEA that fed into the vision of goals of the partnership. Participants included EEA, the Ethiopia Electric Utility, the Ethiopia Electric Power and the Ethiopia Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy.
