Nation Earns 7 Billion Birr from Electric Export in Six Months

Ministry of Water, Energy and Irrigation said 7 billion Birr was generated from electric power export and used equipment during the past six months of the Ethiopian budget year.

Briefing the media today, Water, Energy and Irrigation Minister Silesh Bekele said the revenue was generated by exporting electric power to neighboring countries and selling some used equipment.

According to him, the ministry has also been executing 15 substitution works to generate electricity from geothermal power, solar power and dams, including the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). 

With respect to water, he stated that the ministry has managed to provide clean water for 1.4 million people across the country during the past 6 months. The ministry has also executed 13 projects that irrigate a total of 137,000 hectares of land  during the same period in the fiscal year.

He further noted that the ministry has been working jointly with Ministry of Agriculture to develop wheat through irrigation in order to substitute billions of Birr worth wheat import every year.

As part of the six month performance, Silesh reported that the construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam ( GERD ) has reached 78.3 percent. This is a rapid increase in the construction of the Renaissance Dam, and 91 percent of the civil works have been completed, he pointed out. Of the total 13 power generating turbines, two will start production this coming rainy season. (source : ena)

  32. I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks for wonderful info I was looking for this
    information for my mission.

  33. This will let you quickly come up with blog ideas that you can write new articles on. This may take a while (about three
    minutes in my food processor), and you may think it’s never
    going to emulsify, but it will if you persist. Place
    the pepper and herbs in a food processor and grind to a powder.
    French Thyme is another culinary thyme, but it originated in the Provence region of France
    and is the thyme used in Herbs De Provence and in other French dishes.
    The French is perfect dried and does not lose as much flavor in the drying process as other more
    round leaf thymes tend to. French Thyme is one of the thyme plants that did not make
    it through last winter in my herb garden. However, this year I have a special project– a 20 x 20
    foot community garden patch and in that patch is a 3 foot by 3 foot raised bed with thyme, so
    at least I have beautiful thyme plants to enjoy without memory of what once was!
    I created a raised bed for the thyme in the Community Patch.
    Today (Wednesday) I posted a how to on making a raised bed.
