Uganda will receive €37.1 million from the French Development Agency for the development of its electricity transmission network. The funds will go to finance a project to improve the transmission line of 400 kV connecting 135 km, the cities of Masaka and Mbarara.

Upon completion, the line should allow the country to transport the output of its plants for export to its neighbors including Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The country currently has an energy surplus of 750 MW on average that it is unable to transport because of the narrowness of its electricity grid. The country recently announced plans to inject $1.2 billion over the next seven years into the development of his power grid.

However, the country has one of the highest electricity tariffs in the region, 11 cents per kilowatt hour, making its energy inaccessible to its population.
