The cooperation is part of a project under the Iceland – World Bank compact on geothermal energy and is the second project under the ICEIDA/NDF Geothermal Exploration Project, with the first one already under way in Rwanda, as stated on ICEIDA’s website.

Ethiopia is considered to have great geothermal potential, up to 5,000 MW.
