Energy profile
Extent of network

The electrification rate is just 14%. It is estimated at 26% of urban areas and estimated 5% of rural areas. In rural districts, kerosene is the main fuel for lighting.EDM prepared a Master Plan for the expansion of the country’s national power grid and distribution networks with the goal of reaching 15% of the population by the year 2020, from the present 5%. This goal was archived in 2010 .Power transmission in Mozambique is an especially critical issue for the country for two reasons. First, the large size of the country and its dispersed settlement patterns make dispatching power to the entire population extremely expensive. Secondly, HCB must first export power to Eskom, which in turn sells the power back to southern Mozambique at an increased rate. There are serious technical, financial and national security implications of this. In addition, long-distance dispatching of power wastes a considerable amount of power due to line losses. 

Renewable energy potential

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. 

Energy framework

One of the main policy documents is the Energy Policy (1998). The Government's Energy Policy is straight-forward, presenting a clear statement on the importance of providing energy to the households and productive sectors. It aims to build capacity and improve management within the electricity sector, increasing exports and efficiency, as well as other relevant matters.The Energy Sector Strategy (2000) focuses specifically on how to implement the Energy Policy, including increasing the role of the private sector, developing more competitive markets, and the need for regulation. The Strategy complements the Energy Policy, outlining and making explicit the intentions of the government in the development of plans of action, programmes, projects, investments and other actions for the various energy sub-sectors. It provides necessary guidance for operators in the sector, financial institutions and investors.The Energy Reform and Access Project (2003-2011) aims to accelerate the use of electricity for economic growth and social services in a commercially viable manner. Thereby improving the quality of life in un-served and under-serviced areas, as well as strengthening Mozambique’s ability to increase access to modern energy. The project supports the Government's National Energy Strategy that looks to reform the country’s energy sector and increase private participation. The project also encourages the development of renewable energy, in particular solar photovoltaic systems and micro-hydro projects, as well as contributing to the reduction of Greenhouse Gases.The Electricity Master Plan for Development of the National Grid 2005-2019 focuses on Grid Supply Expansion in the short-to-medium term.
