According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), sub- Saharan Africa is the only region in the world in which the number of people without access to energy is set to increase by 2030 (IEA, 2014). While many nations in the region face similar challenges, Ethiopia ranks particularly low in terms of energy progress – in 2012 the IEA’s World Energy Outlook ranked Ethiopia last out of 80 countries listed, with an Energy Development Index of 0.04.
