Mozambique: A Regional Electricity Exporter


  • *This article will be published in the upcoming AES: Mozambique 2020 Special ReportMozambique's electricity market is dominated by hydropower generation capacity, largely utilized for exports to neighboring South Africa and Zimbabwe via the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP).
  • Managed by state-owned utility Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM), the national grid has been developed as three separate systems: northern (containing a 220 kV transmission system from Songo substation to Nampula and continuing at 110 kV to Nacala); central (containing a 110 kV system linking hydroelectric power stations at Chicamba and Mavuzi with the Beira-Manica corridor); and southern (containing a 110 kV networking from Maputo to XaiXai, Chokwe and Inhambane).
  • That said, the transmission system does not cover all areas of the country, and power to the capital Maputo is re-imported from South Africa's ESKOM, as no direct connection exists between the Cahora Bassa dam and the city.
