President Ismael Omar Guelleh of Djibouti said that the hydroelectric power connection project, under which Ethiopia started to provide electricity to Djibouti last year, fitted very well into the country's clean energy policy.
In a speech delivered to the World Energy Forum, held in Dubai October 22nd - 24th, President Guelleh said his country was pursuing sustainable development of energy solely based on the use of renewable energy resources. World leaders from governments and private sector institutions attended the World Energy Forum this week.
They came together with the aim of creating a roadmap for the provision of safe and sustainable energy accessible to all. The United Nations has designated 2012 as "the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All."
