Water-Energy Nexus // Energy Resource Use Options for Improved Energy Security in Ethiopia

By Hiroshan Hettiarachchi, UNU-FLORES. Ethiopia’s energy sector faces critical challenges to meet a steadily increasing energy demand. This is due to the low development of electric restructure, the countries strong dependence on imported oil, and drought vulnerable hydroelectric power.

Cover policy brief energy security in ethiopia


  • Investigated Ethiopia’s least cost investment for integrated energy source diversification
  • Assessed impacts of drought expected from future climate change on hydroelectric generation
  • The country would need to invest in the development of alternative energy resources
  • This would enhance the sustainability and reliability of energy generation, but also increase costs
  • A greater rates of technological and efficiency innovations improve electricity diversification and reduce production costs; and are thus key for enhancing energy security
