The Democratic Republic of Congo

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is a country located in Central Africa with a short Atlantic Ocean coastline. . The country has a surface 4 times bigger than France and a population of 81 million. Unfortunately, the DRC has a dismal 15% electrification rate at national level.

Hydropower accounts for 98% of the DRC’s generation capacity. Estimates of the current hydro installed capacity stand at 2,621MW, of which 1,377MW (or 50%) is out of service as a result of age and underinvestment. There are plans to build a large dam (Inga III), which could go up to 11GW in size, at the Inga 3 site though realistically the project is not likely to come online before 2030, if ever. The country has about 100GW of hydropower potential, the highest in Africa.
