Zambezi River Basin electrical infrastructure

Year: 2013 Author: GRID-Arendal
The estimated hydropower potential of the Zambezi River is in the order of 20 000 MW of which only 4 684 MW has been developed (Hirji et al. 2002). About 40 possible new hydropower plants with a total installation capacity of more than 13 000 MW have been identified in the basin. About 85 per cent of this capacity is on the Zambezi River itself while the remainder is on its tributaries. Close to half the mapped potential is in Mozambique, about 25 per cent in Zambia and about 20 per cent in Zimbabwe. A little more than five per cent of the potential is divided between Angola, Malawi and Tanzania (SARDC 2008).
