Energy Strategy and Action Plan 2011
This document sets Burundi's energy strategy and implementation actions. It states that main capacity additions will come from hydropower and other renewable resources. Priority is given to the electrification of social infrastructure (schools, hospitals, health centres, pumping stations, local administration offices) in remote, off-grid areas. In the medium to long-term perspective, Burundi's electrical grid will be connected to solar power stations.
The document further aims to increase energy efficiency of biomass use.
