Tanzania to add 6GW of renewable energy projects

Tanzania's new president, Samia Suluhu Hassan, is attracting investors to invest in green and clean energy projects to ensure Tanzania's energy security and mitigate the impact of climate change. She announced that Tanzania will add 6GW of renewable energy. Most of the new energy will come from green energy sources such as solar, wind and hydropower. By 2020, only 40% of Tanzanian citizens will have access to electricity. In absolute terms, the country's total electricity supply is only 1,605 megawatts. If Samia Hassan's 6GW target is achieved, Tanzania could become Africa's third-largest green energy country. Tanzania will be second only to South Africa and Morocco. Tanzania currently uses natural gas to generate electricity, but also plans to use wind energy to generate electricity. Research is also underway on generating electricity from geothermal resources.
