Welcome

Tanzania: The Regional Energy Hub

Tanzania is rapidly emerging as a critical player in the East African region's quest to become a regional energy hub. Ambitious projects, such as the colossal $42 billion LNG export terminal and the 2000MW Julius Nyerere Hydropower plant, demonstrate Tanzania's determination to bolster its energy sector and inspire confidence among private investors. These mega-projects will reshape the industry and unlock many opportunities in power trading, strengthening Tanzania's position as a pivotal regional energy hub.

The country has been making significant strides in interconnection and transmission development, which is crucial to this transformative journey. Through various cross-border energy projects, Tanzania has strengthened its ties with neighbouring countries, facilitating the exchange of electricity and promoting regional energy integration. With ongoing investments in infrastructure and a commitment to renewable energy sources, Tanzania is well on its way to becoming a pivotal player in fostering sustainable energy cooperation and development across East Africa, solidifying its role in the regional energy landscape.

Having brought together key stakeholders from the Government, regional public utilities, DFIs, IPPs, financiers and solution providers, the 5th Tanzania Energy Cooperation Summit in Arusha presented an invaluable opportunity for a two-day immersion into proactive and solution-oriented discussions. The summit explored a broad range of topics, including: successful examples of PPPs in both generation and transmission, the role of DFIs in enhancing credit to accelerate projects, Tanzania's ambitious plans to become a critical regional player through transmission and interconnection projects, as well as the factors needed for Tanzania to reach its total renewable energy potential.

" With Tanzania being one of our founding member countries, we are keen to do more in support of the country's energy sector goals; Building on the progress made at last year's event in Dar es Salaam, we hope that #TECS24 will provide greater clarity on the proposed role of the private sector in the energy sector and how DFIs, particularly multilateral insurers and guarantors like ATIDI, can be supportive of such efforts and the wider energy transition. "  Obbie Banda, Underwriter & Acting RLSF Coordinator at the African Trade & Investment Development Insurance ( ATIDI)
