ERA - Electricity Regulatory Authority

Investment

The Government is promoting small electricity projects as part of the general renewable Energy framework.

In line with this, ERA is responsible for receiving, and processing applications for new investment; and issuing permits and licences for generation, transmission, distributing or sale of electricity.

To this end more than 50 mini hydropower sites with a combined potential of 210 MW have so far been identified through various studies in Uganda .

Small hydropower sites for which no exclusive permits are in force, and which are available for any intending Developer to lodge a Notice of Intended Application with the Electricity Regulatory Authority are shown in Table below.
