Second interconnector between Djibouti and Ethiopia

[img:Sign.thumbnail.jpg| ]1 August 2013 - Ethiopia and Djibouti have signed an agreement for a US$2 billion transmission interconnection, the second, between the two countries, which will allow Ethiopia to export additional electricity to Djibouti.

The transmission line, which covers areas from Semera, in Ethiopia's Afar regional state, to Jaba in Djibouti, will rated at 230 kV, similar to the first transmission line connecting the two countries. It will allow Djibouti to import between 35 and 70 MW from Ethiopia. Djibouti will probably not import more than 50 MW, though, the Addis Fortune reports.

AfDB supports Djiboutian geothermal electricity potential

[img:Agreement%20g_0.jpg| ]22 July 2013 - A new project supported by the African Development Group (AfDB) plans to exploit the geothermal potential in the Lake Assal region to enable Djiboutian population’s access to a reliable, renewable and affordable source of energy.
 
Currently Djibouti relies mostly on fossil fuels and some hydropower imports from Ethiopia. The majority of the country’s current generation capacity is situated in Djibouti City. The existing power stations are old, polluting and expensive to operate.  In addition, fuel imports are expensive and require important foreign-currency expenditure.

Djibouti furthers geothermal prospects

[img:Uganda%20-%20s_0.jpg| ]19 June 2013 - The World Bank has contributed US$6 million for Djibouti to further its geothermal potential. The funds will support Djibouti in assessing the commercial viability of the geothermal resource in the Fiale Caldera area within the Lake Assal region.

"Djibouti is located in the active East African Rift tectonic region which has a high potential for geothermal, an inexpensive, clean, reliable and renewable way of producing electricity," Ilhem Salamon, World Bank project team leader, says. "Unlike wind or solar which are intermittent sources of energy, geothermal energy can be available at any moment. Developing this rich resource could allow Djibouti to function almost entirely on clean and affordable energy and foster private sector participation in the sector."
