Ethiopia/Nigeria: Electricity cooperatives study
A feasibility study has begun into the potential for cooperatives as a business model in electricity provision in Ethiopia and Nigeria. The African Development Bank (AfDB)-managed South-South Cooperation Trust Fund is funding the study, which is being carried out by the United States’ industry association, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association International (NRECA International). It is scheduled to be completed in May this year and will inform plans to pilot the model in the two countries.
