Zambia: Towards surplus electricity production from Renewable Energies

Zambia has made significant progress in power generation. According to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the country has an installed capacity of 2,800 MW. According to the Zambian government, this generating capacity has helped make the country self-sufficient in electricity. Zambia stopped importing electricity as of 2018. The authorities even estimate that electricity production will be in surplus by 2022.
