        Recently, the first energy assistance project of the global energy internet — Abestasto School Power Supply Assistance Project in Ethiopia contracted by China Electric Power Equipment and Technology Co., Ltd. was formally put into operation. This Project has provided reliable power supply to 200 teachers and students at Abestasto School in Oromia State, Ethiopia, improved the teaching conditions of the school and contributed to addressing the power shortage in surrounding impoverished villages.
