The Addis Ababa Electricity Transmission and Distribution System Rehabilitation and Modernization Project aims to extend access to the electricity grid to approximately 5 million residents of the Ethiopian capital and surrounding urban areas over a radius of 50 km in the regional state of Oromia. The project is structured around three components. The first is the rehabilitation and renovation (in the short and medium term) of transmission and distribution networks in Addis Ababa. The second component is the renovation of the distribution network in the surrounding urban areas of the Oromia region, in line with the government's strategy of broad-based growth, poverty reduction and efficiency improvement in service delivery, which should contribute to inclusive economic transformation. The third component will contribute to the improvement and strengthening of the electricity supply,This should increase power supply capacity, while reducing losses along the grid and facilitate an affordable and reliable power supply for both households and businesses, social services and public buildings, with the key to increasing access rates to electricity, improving the living conditions of the population, business growth and job creation, not to mention economic growth. The total cost of the project is estimated at UA 154.39 million (US $ 209.03 million).
The objective of the project is to rehabilitate and modernize existing power transmission and distribution infrastructure in the country's capital and surrounding cities in order to improve the quality and reliability of power supply and strengthen the capacity of the electricity transmission network.
The main beneficiaries of the project are the Ethiopian Electric Power (EEP) and Ethiopian Electric Utility (EEU) electricity companies, the residents of the capital, the industries, the health and education institutions, as well as the commercial enterprises, which currently depend on a limited and unreliable power supply.
