Res4Africa crafted and developed together with CESI and Enel Foundation the report “Integration of Variable Renewable Energy in the National Electric System of Ethiopia”. The study is focused on the integration of variable renewables into the Ethiopian electrical grid considering the development scenario until 2030. The analysis clearly highlights that additional capacity from VRES generation can be integrated, on top of the projects already in the Country’s pipeline, thanks to the exploitation of the future interconnection capacity and the operational flexibility ensured by the hydroelectric power plants. In particular, in 2025 Ethiopia can integrate an installed capacity up to 2,400 MW from wind and 3,350 MW from PV; these capacities can be increased in 2030 up to 3,600 MW from wind and 5,300 MW from PV. The additional VRES capacity will allow to increase the power export providing economic benefits for stakeholders; furthermore, it will ensure high standards of security of supply also improving the system resilience in case of extreme climate conditions.
