There is no shortage of power projects in Zimbabwe, but while there are plenty of independent power producers (IPPs) and several smaller plants under construction, the government’s focus is on state-owned projects. Larger IPPs and investors face the seemingly insurmountable obstacles of the currency crisis and the absence of international funding, while a number of state projects are well advanced.The government has prioritised longstanding projects such as the 600MW expansion of the Hwange coal power plant and repowering of older thermal plants.
