Tanzania Power Guide

Tanzania has diverse energy sources including biomass, natural gas, hydro, coal, geothermal, solar and wind power and uranium, much of which is untapped. Hydropower is a significant electricity source, providing around 35% of total generation. The country’s development of natural gas reserves and infrastructure for LNG export and domestic use, along with gas-fired power plants shows great promise.


Ethiopia Power Guide

The potential of Ethiopia’s renewable and non-renewable energy resources is large, with the economically feasible hydropower potential estimated at 45,000 MW leading to approximately 90% of Ethiopia’s electricity being produced through hydropower.

Kenya Power Guide

Kenya has been hailed for having one of the most developed energy sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa more so in green energy. The country opened its market to Independent Power Producers in the mid-1990s. Private companies are allowed to generate electricity, which they sell to government-controlled entities for transmission and distribution or use toward rural electrification in mostly off-grid areas.

Projects and Infrastructure Nigeria Power Guide

Nigeria’s energy and natural resources industry is central to the economy. With a rapidly expanding population, the country is also turning to renewable energy to bring power to its urban and rural communities and to diversify its energy sources. The country is investing in electricity, solar power projects and hydropower, as the demand for energy by 2020 will almost double from current levels. Nigerian and international companies are seeking to capitalise on its rich natural resources and expanding business opportunities.

Projects and Infrastructure Uganda Power Guide

Uganda has a rapidly growing population and economy. With this growth, its energy needs have risen sharply in the last decade. The Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) estimates that as of December 2022, installed electricity capacity in Uganda was 1,402 megawatts (MW) with demand at 843 MW, leaving a surplus of 559 MW.  Uganda’s largest hydropower project, the 600 MW Karuma Hydro Power Dam is expected to come fully operational in 2024.
