Mozambiqe Power Update: Government backs dams, AfDB supports renewables
For a country with so much energy potential, Mozambique’s power sector is relatively underdeveloped. Big dam projects remain at the planning stage, and the grid is yet to connect urban areas in the south to generation in the centre. While Mozambique’s energy policy is focused on developing its vast reserves of offshore natural gas and its largescale hydro potential, small-scale renewables have received little attention despite their potential in large areas away from the grid. This four page-report provides an overview of Mozambique's power sector, including planned renewables projects. The report contains a full-page map detailing Mozambique's electricity infrastructure. The map is a PDF file, made using eps graphics, allowing the map to be enlarged without loss of resolution.
