Frost & Sullivan: Power InfrastructureFrost & Sullivan: Power Infrastructure Development Set to Diversify East Africa's Energy Mix from Current Dependence on Hydro PR Newswire CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Feb. 10, 2014 - Government prioritisation of energy offers opportunities for foreign investment and cross-border electricity trade expansion Power infrastructure in the East African countries of Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda is inherently connected to its economic growth. As urbanisation and industrialisation fuel the need for electricity in cities, government focus on energy development will provide a platform for both private and public sector participants to contribute. Moreover, it is expected that the energy mix in East Africa will diversify from its predominant dependence on hydro, affording additional opportunities for power infrastructure advancement. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.energy.frost.com), Power Infrastructure Tracker in East Africa, finds that the demand for electricity in East Africa is expected to grow at approximately 5.3 percent per year till 2020. To meet these requirements, generation capacity would have to increase by 37.7 percent in Uganda, 96.4 percent in Kenya, 75.3 percent in Tanzania and 115 percent in Rwanda. Large gas finds have placed East Africa on the map as a major participant in the world gas market.
