The U.S. National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) is planning a partnership exchange on geothermal licensing and permitting processes with the Ethiopian Energy Authority (EEA) in Ethiopia and is seeking up to 3 volunteer experts.

The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) is planning a partnership exchange on geothermal licensing and permitting processes with the Ethiopian Energy Authority (EEA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from January 30 – February 1, 2018 and are searching for up to 3 volunteer experts (a mix of U.S. and international experts) to share their experience and expertise with Ethiopian participants.
