This report provides a comprehensive industry profile, analysis and outlook of Tanzania’s power sector. Tanzania has abundant and diverse forms of energy resources including natural gas, hydro, coal, biomass, geothermal, solar, wind and uranium which have not been optimally utilized. Tanzania is one of the smallest producers of power compared to its neighbours and relies on imports of energy. Large coal and gas deposits have been recently identified in the country. They are yet to be utilized for power generation purposes. The electricity generation sector of the country has been deregulated and some private players are operating in this sector as independent power producers (IPPs).

The report provides a SWOT analysis, full overview of the power sector and its segments with a focus on the sector’s growth and value. It analyses the country’s thermal (e.g. gas and oil) and renewable energy sources including solar (photovoltaic) energy and wind energy. It analyses the sector’s potential, scrutinizes the country’s energy security, its electricity supply and demand structure. It gives and overview of the national electrification program, as well as regional interconnection. It summarizes recent developments in the sector including the major projects, companies and investors. It outlines the main factors driving growth in the sector, as well as gives details on capital and financing. The Report explains the sectoral policy and regulatory environment in the country and provides an assessment of the risks and challenges in the sector for domestic and foreign investors.
