Zimbabwe will need to generate 11 500MW of power for the country to attain an upper-middle-income economy by 2030.
This was said by Energy and Power Development Minister, Fortune Chasi, in a speech read on his behalf by his deputy, Magna Mudyiwa, at the on-going Water, Sanitation, Industry and Energy conference in Bulawayo. Said Chasi:
I should point out at this juncture that an upper-middle-income society of 2030 is estimated to require about 11 500MW of power.
With the current installed capacity of 2 260MW we have, the work in front of us is really challenging.
The country currently has an installed capacity of just 2 260MW, with current generation below 1 000MW.
Power imports from South Africa and Mozambique have not been adequate to meet the deficit, forcing the country’s power utility, ZESA Holdings, to implement rolling power cuts across the country.
