dc.description.abstract Ethiopia’s economy is shifting towards industry by developing cascaded industry parks throughout the county which needs a reliable and uninterruptible supply of electric power. Hence diversifying the energy source of the grid system is highly required which is heavily dependent on hydropower plant i.e. more than 90% of the electricity supply comes from hydropower. Ethiopia has promising wind potential sites. So, the wind technology is an opportunity to address energy mix problem with clean and sustainable energy production. The purpose of this study is to identify the challenges in encountered during the Implementation of Aysha-II Wind Farm Project, to assess their impact and to suggest the possible solutions to overcome the challenges in order to support development of wind power in Ethiopia. Qualitative data analysis was undertaken in the study and interviews were conducted to collect the required data. Three stakeholders which are directly involved in the project implementation were interviewed. The respondents were 25 employees in number including management staffs, professionals and unskilled workers. Additionally, discussion with the contractor’s project manager was made to gain more input in understanding the challenges and possible solutions. The findings of this study shows there are challenges that affect the implementation of the Aysha-II wind farm project and has suggested the possible solutions to overcome these challenges. The output of this study can be useful to the EEP (Client), Consultant Ethiopian Electric Power, particularly, to the project implementation office. en_US
