Botswana Power Report Q3 2015

BMI View: The outlook for Botswana's power sector is somewhat tepid. Between 2015-2024, overall powergeneration will grow incrementally from 0.7TWh in 2015 to 0.9TWh in 2024. Consumption will risesteadily, underpinned by the development of industry and household consumption, which is benefiting froma rapid expansion of the electricity grid. However, risks remain. A lack of regulatory reform and thecontinued domination of the state-owned Botswana Power Corporation means the market remainsinefficient and overly dependent on a single source of energy, namely coal, while the absence of a strongregulatory framework for the development of renewable energy will severely retard the development ofalternative sources of energy. At the same time, losses from the grid will be enormous due to therudimentary condition of the transmission lines and widespread theft from the system.

Key Forecasts

Power generation will increase marginally over the 10-year timeframe, reaching just 0.9TWh in 2024,from 0.7TWh in 2015.

Power consumption will increase rise by more than 33% over the next decade to 4.6TWh in 2024.
