Power infrastructure in DR Congo – September 2020

Power infrastructure in DR Congo map

Revised in September 2020, 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 – including liquid fuels, natural gas, coal, hybrid, hydroelectricity, solar (PV) and methane.

Generation sites are marked with different sized circles to show sites of 1-9MW, 10-99MW, 100-499MW and 500MW and above. Projects including battery storage are marked.

Existing and future transmission lines are shown ranging from 132kV and under to 500kv+. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Angola, Republic of Congo and Zambia.

An inset lists 16 Central African Power Pool priority integration projects.

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.
