Tanzania raises its geothermal game
Tanzania Geothermal Development Company (TGDC) is among the relative newcomers to the sector, created in response to the Tanzanian government’s concern to diversify after drought hit its dominant hydroelectric production early in the decade. Since 2013, when it was incorporated as a subsidiary of Tanzania Electric Supply Company, TGDC has promoted an “active engagement in studies” and has been working towards developing a model of geothermal development. It got funding from the government once politicians were persuaded that geothermal could supply baseload to the under-pressure grid.
