Tanzania: World Bank Energy Development and Access Expansion Project approved

The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors approved the Energy Development and Access Expansion Project for Tanzania.
IDA Credit: US$25 million equivalent
Terms: Maturity = 40 years; Grace = 10 years

The project aims at improving the quality and efficiency of electricity service provision in the three main growth centers of Dar es Salaam, Arusha, and Kilimanjaro, and to establish a sustainable basis for energy access expansion and renewable energy development in Tanzania. The project also contributes to the global environmental objective to abate greenhouse gas emissions through the use of renewable energy in rural areas to provide electricity. This additional financing is primarily to support the project’s small renewal energy components.
