Electricity in Mozambique


Product Description

Executive Summary of Electricity in Mozambique
Electricity in Mozambique - The electricity sector in Mozambique has experienced a recent surge of interest as the government is about to embark on an ambitious expansion plan, that it hopes will create a powerhouse for southern Africa. Much of this depends on development of hydropower potential on the Zambezi, where Mozambique’s largest power plant, Cahorra Bassa, is already operating and exporting energy to neighbouring countries. Up to 10,000MW of capacity might be added over the next 20 years. In addition, Mozambique has newly discovered natural gas reserves and bituminous coal reserves, all of which it plans to use to generate power. While plans to develop and export energy are high on the agenda, the population remains poorly served - with only around 18% having access to power (although estimates differ, and the government puts the level higher). Further, the national grid system is fragmented so that power from Cahorra Bassa can only be transmitted to the main load centres in the south of Mozambique via South Africa. In order to rectify this, a new backbone transmission system is planned, and a major rural electrification programme is already underway, supported by foreign donors.
Mozambique is a coastal southern African state, with high levels of poverty, and rich energy resources. The country has suffered a painful emergence from colonial rule, and levels of corruption, and the openness of government - are still questionable.
