    The objective of the Green Energy NAMA is to develop a rural electrification program, staring with pilot projects using RE mini grids

    This rural electrification NAMA will focus on mini-grids and standalone renewable energy systems (including water pumping for potable water supply and irrigation, agro-processing, power for social services and local enterprises). The NAMA will also combine policy elements and includes plans for capacity building and the development of pilot projects.

    To design a NAMA that fits well with country priorities and expectations, as well as encouraging national ownership, the NAMA is being developed through stakeholder consultations. The first stakeholder workshop was held in Addis Ababa on 17 June, 2015 and organized by MoWIE and Ecofys.

    For the development of the NAMA, the main activities entail:

    - a workshop in September 2015 to discuss abatement potential, MRV requirements as well as financing, and detail characteristics of the NAMA - Finalization of the NAMA before COP21 in December 2015
