Small hydro resource mapping in Tanzania : list of most promising sites : Site visit report (English)

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), a global knowledge and technical assistance program administered by the World Bank and supported by 11 bilateral donors, has launched, in January 2013, an initiative that will support country-driven efforts to improve RE resource awareness, put in place appropriate policy frameworks for RE development, and provide ‘open access’ to resource and geospatial mapping data. It will also support the IRENA Solar and Wind Atlas by improving the data availability and quality that can be accessed through the atlas on a modular basis. This Renewable Energy Mapping: Small Hydro Tanzania study, is part of a technical assistance project, ESMAP funded, being implemented by Africa Energy Practice 1 (AFTG1) of the World Bank in Tanzania (the ‘Client’) which aims at supporting resource mapping and geospatial planning for small hydro. It is being undertaken in close coordination with the Rural Energy Agency (REA) of Tanzania, the World Bank’s primary Client country counterpart for this study. This report comes with the Hydro Mapping report provided at the end of Phase 1 which established an inventory of existing and potential hydropower sites put into perspective in their socio-economic and natural environment. The fact sheets, presented in this report, for the 78 hydropower potential visited sites, contain some preliminary information that must be verified during further detailed investigations before any project development.
