Zimbabwe’s power infrastructure – revised June 2022

Zimbabwe power map
Issue 463
23 June 2022

Revised in June 2022, this map provides a detailed view of the power sector in Zimbabwe. The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned are shown by type – including liquid fuels, gas and liquid fuels, coal, coal bed methane, hybrid, hydroelectricity, nuclear, solar (PV and CSP) 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.

A small inset shows two pie charts for coal production in the Hwange area and the generalised market structure for coking coal, blend coking coal and industrial coal.

The map also shows coal mines and is shaded to show Karoo Basin areas.

Existing and future transmission and distribution lines are shown ranging from 132kV to 400kV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and 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 presented as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
