RDC completed a mission to Rwanda in June 2011 to evaluate 4 small hydro power projects initiated by UNIDO and implemented by the Government of Rwanda and a Sri Lankan contractor using Chinese equipment. The projects are now benefitting 2,000 households and dozens of small businesses in parts of the country without access to the grid. The Government is now actively pursuing small hydro power as a priority for the rural areas of Rwanda to increase the electrification rate from a very low base of 2%.


See the sites of Nyamyotsi (100 kW), Mpenge (55kW), Butubo (200 kW) and Agatobwe (200 kW) below.
