PROPOSAL (draft)



                                 for ending  ENERGY POVERTY   in  ETHIOPIA



    # it takes











    Practical and convenient way to fight ENERGY POVERTY     



    (work-in-progress, needing inputs and contributions by anyone interested. Thank you.)




    Is it bold and crazy (innovative) enough?


    Is it fair to plan 156 billion $ for the grid, and far less than 1% for the rest > 80% (off-grid ) of Ethiopia’s  > 90 million inhabitants? 

    No wonder then the massive exodus to cities and dangerous migration abroad, especially of young women living in extreme poverty.
