Electricity in Madagascar


Product Description

Executive Summary for Electricity in Madagascar
Electricity in Madagascar - Madagascar has one of the lowest levels of access to electric power in the world. Madagascar has significant resources of hydropower, wind power and some geothermal potential, and although there is sufficient hydropower capacity to supply just over half its demand, little capacity has been added in the past 25 years. Instead the state utility, Jirama, has been forced to rely increasingly on diesel-fired engines to meet demand, and the country now has in the region of 100 such plants. These include both plants built by the utility, and others that have been leased. There are also a number of independent power producers, providing power to the grid. Madagascar could attract support from a number of international agencies, but all projects have been placed on hold since democratic rule was overturned in 2009. If a return to democracy is completed in 2013, then international investors may return. In the meantime Jirama is operating at a loss, with tariffs not matching the cost of production, and has little resources to invest either in additional generating capacity or in extension of the limited grid system.
