Kanungu is a small run-of-river hydropower plant which reduces emissions by displacing diesel-powered generators that supply the Ugandan national grid. The electricity grid in Uganda is poorly developed and 83% of the population have no access to electricity. The project generates approximately 29 GWh of electricity each year which, though small, delivers additional capacity to the grid and roughly 20,000 tonnes of emissions reductions. This will enhance rural access to electricity services and, importantly, reduce load shedding, which negatively affects the local economy by shutting off electricity supply at unknown intervals.
In addition to delivering emissions reductions to take climate action (SDG 13), the project delivers a number of other benefits including:
