Hydropower in Angola

Hydropower Installed Capacity866MW

Hydropower Production367ktoe per year

Angola’s estimated hydropower potential is 150 TWh/yr, one of the highest in Africa. However, so far only a small fraction of the country’s hydro potential has been harnessed. Feasibility Studies are in progress on major hydro schemes at Lauca and Caculo-Cabaca on the Kwanza river, each with an installed capacity of 2 000 MW, and on a bi-national project at Baynes Mountain on the Cunene (see country note on Namibia).
