Bujagali Energy Limited

Bujagali Energy Limited is a leading power producer, delivering affordable and clean energy in Uganda through the Bujagali Hydro Power Plant.

The power plant is located near Lake Victoria, on the Victoria Nile. When commissioned in 2012 Bujagali was the largest hydropower generation facility in Uganda and nearly doubled Uganda’s peak electricity supply, eliminated daily load-shedding and provided a reliable solution to meet the country’s increasing power demand.

The 250MW plant currently contributes up to 31% of Uganda’s effective energy capacity, setting a unique precedent for Public-Private Partnerships in the region.
