DR Congo’s power infrastructure - Revised February 2021

Issue 432
11 February 2021

Revised in February 2021, this map provides a detailed overview of the power sector in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned are shown by type, illustrating the country's huge hydropower potential. Other generation types shown include natural gas, liquid fuels, methane, coal, solar (PV) and hybrid.

Two insets show the areas around Kinshasa and the exisiting and proposed Inga projects.

Existing and future transmission and distribution lines are included ranging from 132kV to 500kV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Zambia.

Power generation data was drawn from our African Energy Live Data platform, which contains project level detail on power plants and projects across Africa.

The map is available as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
