Zambezi River Basin electrical infrastructure

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% 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% in Zambia and about 20% in Zimbabwe. A little more than five per cent of the potential is divided between Angola, Malawi and Tanzania (SARDC 2008).
