Small-scale hydropower generation represents one of the most appropriate option to spread access to electricity in rural Tanzania.

Abstract

Small-scale hydropower generation represents one of the most appropriate option to spread access to electricity in rural Tanzania. In this context, CEFA, an Italian non-government organization, has been recently awarded with a grant by the Tanzanian Rural Energy Agency for the realization of a feasibility study for a 6MW grid-connected Small Hydro Power Plant, situated in Ninga-Njombe. In this context, the feasibility study needs an accurate load demand evaluation of the villages in the area, to maximize the energy output of the plant and the surplus that could be sold to the national electric supply utility TANESCO.
