The 250MW Bujagali Hydro Power Plant contributes up to 49% of Uganda’s effective energy capacity. Setting a unique precedent for public private partnerships in the region, the project is Africa’s largest privately financed hydropower project and currently the largest Clean Development Mechanism project registered in a Least Developed Country. The project has catalysed further investment in education, healthcare, social development and other aspects that contribute to quality of life.
