Industry brief: Mozambique has a huge energy potential ranging from renewable (hydro, solar, wind, geothermal, oceanic and biomass) to fossil fuel sources (coal and natural gas). The country has a great regional role to play insofar as electricity generation and supply is concerned, where, at the moment, the national grid serves below 30% of the entire Mozambican Population.
Having in consideration that the economy growth in following years will reinforce the demand for more reliable Electricity, these potentialities, being coupled with the according investment in the distribution network, will help addressing the domestic needs as well as alleviate the region’s (SAPP) demand for Electricity.
Whatana's goal: Become a prominent Mozambican developer and investor in energy generation projects and help the country as well as the region filling the gap between demand and supply of more reliable electricity. At the moment, Whatana is co-developing the Moatize Coal Power Plant project (2,400 MW, with initial 300 MW), and is studying options to develop other renewable options, including Hydro, Solar and Wind.
