Africa uses only 10 percent of hydropower potential

Only 10 percent of Africa’s hydropower potential has been tapped, according to an energy expert.

At the opening Tuesday of a three-day World Hydropower Congress in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, Liu Zhenya, chairman of the Global Energy Interconnection and Cooperation Organization, said Africa could become a net hydropower exporter to Europe and West Asia.

“Africa’s hydropower stands at 10 percent of the continent’s potential,” he said.

The congress organized by the International Hydropower Association (IHA) brought together 170 hydropower experts, government officials and representatives of international agencies.
