Angola to build wind farm

In a bid to address the country’s energy deficit, Angola is building what will be one of Africa’s biggest wind farms.

The Angolan minister of Energy and Water, João Baptista Borges, said in Luanda that the wind farm would be constructed in the region of Tombua. It will generate 100 megawatts of power.

The project is in line with the country’s strategy of ensuring that renewable energies can play an increasingly decisive role in reducing the energy deficit facing the electricity sector, in the face of ever-increasing demand for electricity.

The department is looking to provide the necessary stability, particularly to urban centres, by building new power plants and modernising existing ones.
