The domestic power utility ZESA says the country remains on course to achieve sufficient power generation to meet demand and reserve requirements by 2019 guided by the utility's 20-year system development plan.

Zimbabwe which is currently importing at least 300 megawatts of power per month from South Africa to ease electricity deficit is confident of a brighter future characterised by sufficient power generation and excess energy for export.

According to the power utility, the domestic electricity supply market will move to adequacy in 2018 and progressive excess in 2019.

Addressing participants at the just concluded International Conference on Research, Innovation and Development for Africa, ZESA Engineer in charge of planning, Simon Mutamba said the company has prioritised the roll out of the 20-year system development geared at meeting demand, ensuring the security of supply and use of correct technology.

Results of the recently instituted load forecast study show that power demand is projected to surge from 2.165 megawatts in 2019 to 4.356 megawatts by 2038 and the utility is convinced it will have the capacity to meet the future demand.

Zimbabwe is targeting self-sufficiency in terms of energy supply with ongoing and planned power projects envisaged to increase generation capacity at peak to at least 5 344 megawatts by 2038.
