Revised in March 2024, this map provides a detailed view of the power sector in Tanzania. The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned are shown by type – including liquid fuels, gas and liquid fuels, natural gas, coal, geothermal, hydroelectricity, solar PV, wind and biomass/biogas.

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

Existing and future transmission and distribution lines are shown ranging from 33kV to 400kV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Burundi, DR Congo, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia. An inset also illustrates Tanzania's future regional  interconnections.

Three small pie charts show installed capacity by fuel, and the percentage of capacity which is on-grid and state-owned.

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 also shows the location of Tanzania's offshore gas fields and other hydrocarbons infrastructure including pipelines and proposed LNG facilities.

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