Rwanda and Burundi: Power infrastructure and data – October 2023

Rwanda, Burundi power map and data
Issue 493
22 October 2023

Revised in October 2023, this graphic combines power infrastructure maps of Rwanda and Burundi with data tables and graphics showing key economic indicators and demographics.

The maps show the location of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned, by type – including liquid fuels, methane, peat, solar PV, geothermal and biomass/biogas.

Generation sites are marked with different sized circles to show sites of 1-9MW, 10-99MW and 100-499MW.

Existing and future transmission and distribution lines are shown ranging from 70kV to 220kV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Tanzania and Uganda.

A small inset focus in more detail on the immediate region surrounding Kigali.

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

For each country there is a table listing demographic indicators plus four small trend charts illustrating real GDP growth, real GDP growth per capita, CPI inflation and budget balance/current account.

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