Angola to raise power tariffs following IMF accord


Issue 383 - 20 Dec 2018 - By Thalia Griffiths

Angola has published an action plan for the energy and water sectors covering the period 2018-2022. The plan aims to raise total installed capacity to 7.5GW in 2022 from 6.4GW in 2018 by expanding the role of gas and renewables, mainly solar.
