Uganda has two thermal power plants, Jacobsen (operated by Jacobsen Uganda Limited) and Electro-Maxx (by Electro-Maxx Uganda Limited). These power plants have a total installation capacity of 100 MW.
These plants generated 242.0 GWh in 2017 as compared to 66.3 GWh in 2016. The increase in energy generated in the first and second quarters of 2017 (Figure 12) was due to the increase in demand from Kenya.
