BI Marketing Analyst input into report marketing Section 1: Front Page Lead Graphic and Quote Figure 2.2 Figure 3: Botswana installed capacity by type (MW) Table 3 shows the installed capacity in 2012, broken down by type. As already indicated there was 132MW of coal-fired capacity and 160MW of diesel-fired gas turbine peaking capacity. There is also a limited amount of off- grid capacity based on solar cells (not shown in the table since capacities are not known), mostly supplied by a company called BPC Lesedi, a collaborative effort between BPC the UNDP and the Global Environment Facility. EDF International is also a partner in the scheme.
BI Marketing Analyst input into report marketing Section 2: Introduction, market background and USPs Botswana has established itself as one of the most stable democracies in Southern Africa. The country has major coal reserves and one of the highest solar intensities in the continent. However its electricity sector has been hampered by both low access to power by the population, and an extremely limited generating capacity. In the past the small generating capacity has been compensated for by the ready import of power from South Africa. However a power shortage in the latter means that exports are being significantly curtailed so that several countries in the Southern African Power Pool including Botswana must increase their own generating capacity to compensate. Capacity is being expanded with a major new power plant using Chinese contractors, but the project is behind schedule, and the Botswana Power Corporation is having to use emergency diesel generation to meet the shortfall. Over the medium term there are plans for further significant capacity expansion so that all demand can be met from within Botswana and that, potentially, the country could use its coal reserves to become an exporter of power. Plans to attract independent power producers will depend on an overhaul of the regulatory framework, currently underway, and the establishment of electricity tariffs determined by market rates. If this can be achieved then the country appears to offer opportunities for a range of both generation, transmission and distribution projects.
