Modeling Energy for Sustainable Development in Ethiopia

Project description

Studying Ethiopia’s environment-energy-economy interactions

The environment-energy-economy interlinkages in Ethiopia are important but have yet to be studied. Current research focuses on the supply side of a specific energy source. The EU-funded MEND project will focus on the interaction between energy sources and the interaction of energy with environment and economy. It will also consider the demand side. The project will use a partial equilibrium energy model and an economy-wide general equilibrium model. The findings will be useful in the development of Ethiopia’s future energy policy. Currently, the country relies on traditional biomass energy sources. Barely a quarter of total households in Ethiopia use electricity as a source of light in their houses, while the vast majority of households depend on biomass for cooking fuel.
