Africa/Middle East: Ethiopia

Peer Review on Tariff Guidelines and Methodologies for Ethiopia’s Electricity Sector

Date: April 21-23, 2015
Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

With the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), this activity supported the Ethiopia Energy Authority’s (EEA) effort to establish sound tariff methodologies that lead to a cost reflective tariff. This peer review built upon the European Commission’s recommendations in the Tariff Guidelines and Methodology for the Electricity Sector in Ethiopia: Generation, Transmission and Distribution.

NARUC experts shared their experiences with the EEA and worked collaboratively to conduct a detailed review and discussion on the practical implementation. The review led to the EEA reevaluating some structures for collecting data from the utility.
