Rwandese gov’t sets up methane power generating project

Rwanda is set to increase its electricity output through the recently launched KivuWatt project  which is a methane power producing source.

It started operations in May, is part of a network of projects aimed at providing 70 percent of the 11 million population with power from the grid or off-grid by 2018, up from 25 percent now.

Much will come from renewable resources.

Across Africa, governments are struggling to increase power capacity and expand grids to meet the demands of growing populations with rising aspirations.
