The project development objectives were to increase the efficiency and sustainability of Ethiopia's power sector, and to increase electricity use for economic growth and improved quality of life; and to improve utilization efficiency of rural renewable energy. Progress on these objectives was measured by Ethiopia achieving by the end of 2002: total system failures of no more than 3 per year; capacity to connect 250, 000 new customers to the grid as the distribution network is rehabilitated and expanded (under a separate project); 100% of new industrial applicants for power connections will be satisfied; and (iv) to inventory biomass stock in Northern regions.
