Utilization of solar and wind energy for rural water supply in Ethiopia

Thursday, January 1, 2009
Project Status: 
Completed

January 2009 - The Government of Ethiopia received a €2 million grant to promote and pilot the use of solar and wind energy for water pumping in rural areas of Ethiopia, and initiate development of a long-term investment in these technologies under the Universal Access Programme (UAP) where they are appropriate and most suitable. The project is expected to result in an increased and sustained supply of water at lower financial, economic, environmental and social costs than with fossil fuel powered pumping systems for rural water supply in Ethiopia.
