Energy Resources, in partnership with an International financial group, is one of the companies selected to participate to a public tender for the construction of 2 photovoltaic plants (100 MW each) in Ethiopia, and the contract value is about 200 million dollars.

This is a very important challenge for Energy Resources and for the “green revolution” which has always been the mission of the company. In fact in the African continent there are lots of communities with no access to electricity and public net, even if their energy needs are in constant growth. Especially Ethiopia represent an extremely promising market, in which the solar energy can be crucial to improve the conditions of the areas with no access to the net.
The site identified as possible location for the photovoltaic plant is in the Tigrè region, in the north of the country, a strategic place both geographically and for solar irradiation, further valuable with the construction of a photovoltaic plant.
The strategical area and the remarkable dimension of the tender, attract 60 known companies around the world: among the 18 qualified, together with ER, there are Enel Green Power, Sky Power, Biotherm, Acciona, Mitsubishi and TBEA Xinjiang Sunoasis Co.
Energy Resources express satisfaction in seeing recognized, once again Its know-how in a worldwide competition and the capability to be among the international top players in the renewable energy market.
