Many African countries are currently exploring the use of solar and other renewable energy sources, with Ethiopia being a strong market for solar industry and is currently focusing on developing the same. Solar photovoltaic are being promoted to replace fuel-based lighting and off-grid electrical needs. Ethiopia is thought to have about 5 MW of off-grid solar with almost all current solar power being used for telecommunications, village well pumps, health care and school lighting. A current government initiative however plans to bring solar power to 150,000 households.
This exhibition will therefore showcase the progress of Solar Energy in Ethiopia, East Africa, and on the entire African continent.
