Universal access to electricity in Africa is hindered not only by insufficient generating capacity but also by inadequate transmission infrastructure and grid interconnectivity between countries to enable trading and the flow of power from areas of surplus to deficit.

While Southern Africa has a degree of interconnected power grids among countries, more needs to be done. With Zambia being at the centre of this interconnected grid network, CEC pursues new transmission and generation projects, in light of both their national and regional impact.

Factors driving growth in CEC’s core business include:

  • expansion of mining activities by CEC’s existing mine customers;
  • connection of new mines and other mining related businesses currently being planned;
  • mining fuelled growth of CEC’s domestic wheeling in the form of domestic (expanding towns), industrial and commercial loads on the Copperbelt;
  • power trading involving CEC’s owned international Interconnector between Zambia and DRC; and
  • our strategy to move beyond Zambia’s borders and into the region.
