Currently Uganda has a short term surplus situation, but the rapidly growing demand (10% p.a) will overturn this status if no new power generation is commissioned in the medium term.

     *  In the short term, the generation capacity attributed to the un-dispatched thermal power plant presents an opportunity for enhanced security of supply and energy trade.

     *  The availability of funding from government of Uganda and various agencies on the concessional terms opens a window for UETCL to execute its planned investment. 

     *  The ongoing implementation of the regional interconnection projects presents a greater opportunity for regional energy exchange and trade.

    *   The growing Portfolio of power projects under implementation will therefore deliver a robust grid infrastructure for more reliable, stable flexible power system.
