The energy and mining sector are the two most important drivers of growth in Zambia although the energy sector can have a more transformative impact as it has a direct bearing on all avenues of society.
Zambia has abundant hydroelectric resources and meets most of its energy needs from its own hydroelectric stations, with 99.9 percent of produced electricity coming from hydro sources.
Installed electricity generation capacity in Zambia is at about 1,789 MW out of which 1,676 is hydropower despite the nation’s undeveloped generation capacity of about over 6,000 MW.  (VENTURES AFRICA)[eap_ad_3]
