With power demands to grow at 4.3% annually in the region of the Southern African Power Pool and 5.8% annually in the East African Power Pool, new capacity is being added to meet demand. Most parties are agreed that an increasing portion of this power must be renewable and hydroelectricity will provide much of this capacity in the two regions.

From climate change to competing water demands, however, hydroelectricity does not come without associated challenges. In this report we examine the Power Pool plans along with the Clean Energy Corridor and how hydroelectricity fits in to those plans. With analysis from Lund University’s Professor Olsson, we also examine the associated challenges and opportunities presented by renewables in the regions.
