  • Ethiopia plans hydropower project along Nile River

    Ethiopia will start building a major hydro project along the Nile River to generate power to increase electricity production, Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said.

    The Horn of Africa nation aims to produce 15,000 MW of power within 10 years, part of a strategy to spend $12 billion over 25 years to improve the country's power-generating capabilities, wire reports indicate.

    The Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation said the hydro project would generate 5,000 MW upon completion in five to 10 years.

    Power demand in Africa will rise by 150,000 MW between 2007 and 2030, according to the International Energy Agency.
