Uganda has one of the lowest per capita electricity consumption rates in the world. Generation capacity is dominated by hydropower, supported by heavy fuel oil and biomass cogeneration power plants. As in other Sub-Saharan African countries that predominantly rely on hydropower, erratic rainfall and droughts have affected electricity supply in recent years and led to frequent load shedding. Currently, thanks to increased capacity and 50 MW of capacity from heavy fuel oil plants, incidence of load shedding has declined to almost zero. Uganda’s largest hydroelectric power plant is the 250 MW Bujagali plant, which was commissioned in 2012 and almost doubled Uganda’s installed capacity at the time. It is operated by a public-private partnership between the Government of Uganda, investment firm Blackstone, Sithe Global Power and the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development. The country is under pressure to find additional energy sources, as electricity demand is growing at an annual rate of 10-12%. It also intends to achieve a rural electrification rate of 22% by 2022.
