HydropowerMozambique has become a large hydroelectricity producer. Its hydropower generation potential is estimated at roughly 15,000 MW per year, of which only 2,100 MW is currently being exploited. The Government has identified roughly 100 locations with hydropower potential including Manica, Tete and Niassa. As electricity demand across the South African Power Pool (SAPP) grows, developing Mozambique’s hydropower potential, and the necessary transmission links to neighbouring countries, will be one of the keys to keeping costs and carbon emissions low.SolarMozambique has a huge and virtually unexploited solar potential. Annual incident solar radiation, distributed evenly across the country, is about 1.49 million GWh – thousands of times more than the country’s current annual energy demand.WindIn the context of promoting clean energy, measurements of the wind power potential in the country are taking place in the Ponta de Ouro, District of Matutuıne, in Maputo Province and Tofinho, city of Inhambane, in the province of the same name. More measurements in other locations to map the national wind power potential are planned.BiofuelUse of biomass electricity has the potential to generate the most jobs because Mozambique’s small and medium sized enterprises can be involved in all stages of the supply and production chain. Bagasse wastes from the sugar industry, copra wastes from the coconut industry and the other sources could enable Mozambique to quickly build up a power industry based on clean, indigenous biomass fuels.
