Facts & Figures

Country Surface

Ethiopia and Germany are among the biggest countries in their respective regions. Ethiopia is the 10th largest country on the African continent, Ethiopia’s surface exceeds Germany’s by more than three times. This brings along challenges for energy infrastructure, but also potential for distributed energy solutions, for which Germany has significant experience to share.

CO-2 Emissions per Capita

Algeria and Germany have committed to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions under the Paris Agreement. Both countries have a clear interest in supporting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions: Germany’s emission level is decreasing, but still high, while Algeria is strongly concerned by the consequences of climate change (drought, desertification). The two countries are thus cooperating within international frameworks to promote CO-2 emissions reduction and transformation of energy systems.

Solar Irradiation

Ethiopia’s and Germany solar irradiation is similar. Giving its high potential for energy production from solar energy, Ethiopia is pursuing ambitious plans to harness this potential by large and medium scale solar energy projects through private sector. This brings along implementation challenges, but also potential for distributed energy solutions, for which Germany has significant experience to share.
