Currently Uganda has a short term surplus situation, but the rapidly growing demand (10% p.a) will overturn this status if no new power generation is commissioned in the medium term.
In the short term, the generation capacity attributed to the un-dispatched thermal power plant presents an opportunity for enhanced security of supply and energy trade.
The availability of funding from government of Uganda and various agencies on the concessional terms opens a window for UETCL to execute its planned investment.
The ongoing implementation of the regional interconnection projects presents a greater opportunity for regional energy exchange and trade.
The growing Portfolio of power projects under implementation will therefore deliver a robust grid infrastructure for more reliable, stable flexible power system.
