Energy in Uganda - Wikipedia

Burning of renewable resources provides approximately 90 percent of the energy in Uganda, though the government is attempting to become energy self-sufficient. While much of the hydroelectric potential of the country is untapped, the government decision to expedite the creation of domestic petroleum capacity coupled with the discovery of large petroleum reserves holds the promise of a significant change in Ugandastatus as an energy-importing country.

Promotion of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Programme

Uganda is richly endowed with natural resources. In terms of energy, the country has abundant biomass, including large quantities of non-woody biomass, as well as peat and water resources. It also enjoys ideal solar, geothermal and wind energy potential. Water and biomass make the biggest contributions to the energy demands of Uganda’s population. The unsustainable use of the available resources has, however, left the country with an inadequate supply of energy.
