EnergyNet is hosting the 5th Tanzania Energy Cooperation Summit (TECS) in Arusha from the 31st of January to the 1st of February 2024.
The summit will bring together key stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, fostering proactive and solution-driven dialogues.
Tanzania is rapidly emerging as a critical player in the East African region’s quest to become a regional energy hub.
Ambitious projects, such as the colossal USD 42 billion LNG export terminal and the 2000MW Julius Nyerere Hydropower plant, demonstrate Tanzania’s determination to bolster its energy sector and inspire confidence among private investors.
These mega-projects will reshape the industry and unlock many opportunities in power trading, strengthening Tanzania’s position as a pivotal regional energy hub.
The country has been making significant strides in interconnection and transmission development, which is crucial to this transformative journey.
Through various cross-border energy projects, Tanzania has strengthened its ties with neighboring countries, facilitating the exchange of electricity and promoting regional energy integration.
With ongoing investments in infrastructure and a commitment to renewable energy sources, Tanzania is well on its way to becoming a pivotal player in fostering sustainable energy cooperation and development across East Africa, solidifying its role in the regional energy landscape.
