The Ethiopian Energy Authority (“EEA”) approved to regulate the supply of power for non-commercial purposes.

October 19, 2021

The Ethiopian Energy Authority (“EEA”) has authorized the regulation of non-commercial electricity supply (also informally known as Captive power supply). A captive energy plant is a power plant that solely serves electricity to one customer, such as a big manufacturing or mining operation.

The demand for electricity in large industries is enormous, and national utilities frequently lack the ability to deliver electricity on a consistent and dependable basis. To satisfy their demands, most companies rely on costly backup diesel generators. Captive power generation, which generally uses renewable energy sources, is particularly appealing since it allows for more control over energy supply, dependability, and cost.

Institutions may get this service by getting certification from the Ethiopian Energy Authority (“EEA”). Generated must be greater than 200 KW. Those who produce less than 200 KW of power are excluded from the certification. Applicants for certification may opt for separate or consolidated certificates having generation, transmission, and distribution components.
