The bill has set tariff rates for generation of electricity from eight sources available locally including solar, wind and bagasse, which is a fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane or sorghum stalks are crushed to extract their juice and used as a biofuel and coal. This complaint was raised during a meeting between stakeholders to comment on the first draft in November of last year. Stakeholders included the Addis Abeba Chamber of Commerce & Sectoral Association, the Ethiopian Electric & Power Corporation (EPPCo) and experts from GIZ, a German International Corporation as well as the Addis Abeba Institute of Technology (AAIT).
The new Feed-in-Tariff Proclamation was to be passed into law during this year to facilitate large scale deployment of renewable energy investment by providing investment security and market stability for private investors investing in the sector. . .
