PROJECT OVERVIEW

Greening the Tea Industry in East Africa project, is a renewable energy initiative co-implemented by United Nations Environmental Program & the African Development Bank (AfDB) and executed by East African Tea Trade Association (EATTA).

The objective of the Greening the Tea Industry in East Africa (GTIEA) Project is to increase investment in renewable energy, to reduce energy costs to the tea industry in countries covered by EATTA, improve reliability of power supply, increase power supply for rural electrification and reduce Greenhouse Gases emissions (GHGs) through removal of barriers.

Expected Outputs

During the four year phase, the GTIEA project is expected to result in an additional 10 MW of small hydropower in EATTA member countries.

Ten high quality detailed feasibility studies will be carried out. At least six pilot demonstration projects are expected to result from these ten studies.

Beyond the initial four-year phase, the project is expected to stimulate a total installation of an additional 82 MW of small hydropower capacity in the medium to long term.
