Burundi has substantial resources for solar and hydropower development. Currently, the country relies on fuel imports and wood burning for lighting and heating and to develop to it's full potential, it needs to increase capacity. Burundi is well placed to commit to renewable energy generation assets, making the most of the market and using clean energy in it's development.
Kaboni have previously orginated the >100MW Run of the River (RoR) hydropower system in Cameroon - finding, analysing and developing the resources. Burundi has many potential RoR hydro resources, and we are looking to find, analyse and develop these in the same way, for either utility or decentralised production. Our team in Burundi is carrying out feasibility assessments on resources in the North-West, with surveys and studies and to continue throughout 2020.
Kaboni is currently developing RoR Hydropower in Burundi under: Kaboni Energy Ltd Company Number: 11988529
