Uganda Power Report Q4 2014

BMI View: The outlook for Uganda's power sector is good. The country is investing in both thermal andrenewable energy and generation will double over the next decade. Demand for electricity will also doubleas the economy and population grows, and as investment in the electricity grid gives more people access topower. However, market opportunities are limited by a hazardous investment environment.

The outlook for Uganda's power sector is good. Following an unbundling of the power sector last decadeand a commitment by the government to diversify beyond a traditional dependence on hydropower, thecountry is now developing the capacity to generate both thermal and renewable energy. This will underpin anear doubling in electricity generation over the next decade from 3.2TWh in 2014 to 5.8TWh by 2023.

During the same time timeframe, demand for electricity will also double from 2.9TWh to 5.6TWh as theeconomy and population grow, and as investment in the electricity grid gives more people access to power.

However, market opportunities are limited by a hazardous investment environment, characterised by highlevels of corruption and political risk, including the risk of sudden withdrawal of operating licences, asrecently happened with Umeme.
