Tanzania Electricity Access is limited but it has been growing in recent years. Around 36% of population now lives in proximity of the grid and 32% had access to the network according to the latest data available.
Access to clean cooking solutions is still very limited also in urban areas. Biomass-to-energy is responsible for 90% of the total primary energy consumption in Tanzania and 90% of the biomass demand is for household consumption (firewood, charcoal, crop residues). Renewable Energies, mainly large hydro, represents 38% of the installed capacity in 2012.
The Government of Tanzania has shown strong global leadership by becoming one of the first countries to opt-in on the SEforALL Initiative, it prepared a RAGA and developed and adopted the Action Agenda and the Investment Prospectus through a consultative process with the stakeholders of the Energy Sector, namely Donors, CSOs, NGOs and the private sector. The Action Agenda set the ambition of achieving more than 75% access to both clean cooking and electricity, while achieving at least 50% of RE in the power sector. Energy efficiency is also set to improve at a 2.6% a year.
The SEforALL implementation is coordinated by a focal point in the Ministry of Energy and Minerals.
