Ethiopia’s large-scale solar market is characterised by a rapidly changing landscape.

This is driven by a strong governmental will and commitment to accelerate solar PV development in a country that is facing increasing power demands in the light of growing industrialisation and an economy that is opening up for international business. 

In order to provide insights into the latest developments surrounding utility-scale solar in Ethiopia and a full understanding of the tender program and the opportunities, Solarplaza is hosting a webinar on the 14th of May featuring Jason Lee, Investment Officer at the International Finance Corporation.

The complimentary webinar, “A new vision for Ethiopian solar,  will focus on the current status and history of the Ethiopian PV market, as well as the impact and overview of the tender program. Jason will also share practical experiences with project development and financing. 

This webinar is part of the run-up to Solarplaza’s The Solar Future: Deserts of Africa event on 2-4 July 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Do you want to learn more about the opportunities that exist in Ethiopia’s solar sector? Join us at this event to gain the latest insights into Ethiopia’s flourishing solar sector, and to engage in high-level discussions with developers, financial institutions and other key players about the solar opportunities in Africa’s deserts.
