ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA — The Chinese-built railway Ethiopia-Djibouti railway officially opened on Wednesday, marking the latest instance of the Sino-African cooperation. The 750-km railway links the Red Sea port of Djibouti to Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa. According to Xinhua, it is Africa’s first electric railway. The trains are powered by overhead wires. The train can travel at a top speed of 120 km per hour, which is much slower than other high-speed trains in the world. Nonetheless, the railway is expected to reduce a drive time of seven days between the two places to just 10 hours. According to Xinhua, the railway will be managed by a consortium of Chinese companies for about six years until Ethiopians are trained enough to take over. The Chinese management aims to create ne...

Ethiopia's Prime minister has just commissioned a new dam expected double the country's power output. Gibe Three, Africa's third-largest dam, cost the east African nation 1.5 billion Euros, and took almost a decade to construct. Environmentalists have, however, warned the project could affect supply of water to Lake Turkana, in neighboring Kenya
Ethiopia has inaugurated a 1.5 billion dollars hydro-electric generating dam. Located in southern region of the country, the Gibe 3 dam is to generate 1,870 mega watts of power, helping Ethiopia to double its power out put. CCTV's Girum Chala filed this report
Kenya is considering importing electricity from the neighboring Ethiopia in efforts to bring down the cost of electricity. The revelation was made at an engagement meeting between Kenya Power and its biggest consumer the manufacturing sector which accounts for 60 percent of the utility provider’s revenue manufacturers in the country have been complaining about the high cost of doing business mainly driven by the cost of energy. And as Faizal Ahmed reports this could be a silver lining for manufacturers even as the plan threatens to scuttle the country’s self imposed deadline of generating 5000 megawatts of electricity by the end of 2017.

Ethiopia has launched an electric car, despite suffering from power shortages. It is only the second African country to do so, after South Africa. Two versions of the Solaris Elettra will be manufactured in Addis Ababa, costing around $12,000 and $15,000. The cars will be sold in Ethiopia and exported to Africa and Europe. But some doubt if Africa, where erratic power supplies, low levels of personal wealth and poor infrastructure are common, is ready for electric cars. Carlo Pironti, general manager of Freestyle PLC, the company producing the Solaris, told the BBC's Uduak Amimo in Addis Ababa that Ethiopia's electricity shortages were not a major obstacle to operating an electric car. "Ethiopia in future will have lots of power supply," he said. "In any case, the car can b...
