Peat to Power

The theoretical potential for electricity generation from peat is estimated to be at least 400 MW. Rwanda plans to develop its peat resources to generate about 260 MW of power by 2017. Whereas the government funded Gishoma (15 MW) peat plant is under construction, two (2) other peat-to-power projects are on the right track to implementation i.e. 100 MW IPP by Hakan, Turkish investor and another IPP is being investigated by Punj Lloyd, an Indian investor. There is an additional investment potential of at least 15 MW at the Southern bog area/South Akanyaru in the Southern province. Peat mining to supply peat to peat plants under development and for direct use is another investment potential.
