BMI View: Uganda's power sector investment remains focused on hydropower capacity, which will leave the country vulnerable to potential intermittent electricity generation during periods of decreased rainfall or drought. We forecast that total electricity generation will increase from over 3.7TWh in 2016 to 10TWh in 2025, as the country's hydropower projects come online.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

  • The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development has stated that the 600 megawatt (MW) Karuma dam is on schedule and at least 27% complete. The excavation for the powerhouse is reportedly near completion, which is a crucial aspect for the construction of underground power systems.

  • The Ugandan government has teamed up with Umeme with the aim of supplying 311,000 LED bulbs to Umeme customers throughout the country. The goal is to provide Ugandans with a more energy efficient bulb, therefore potentially reducing electricity costs.

  • Umeme has stated that areas in Uganda have been experiencing power outages as a result of planned maintenance, which is reportedly necessary as alleged vandalism has been causing faults at different power installations.

  • Uganda is currently exploring the potential for geothermal energy, and will drill three exploration wells. It is estimated that up to 30MW can be generated from each successful well.

  • With the discovery of uranium back in 2007, the Ugandan government has been exploring possibilities of developing nuclear power capacity. Currently no projects are in the pipeline.
