The Minister of Energy Newton Kambala announced that the Independent Power Producers (IPPs) will be audited to assess their progress.

Speaking to The Nation newspaper, Kambala said the audit follows revelations by the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) that out of the licensed 10 IPPs with a collective generation capacity of 368MW, only two are operational.

“Indeed, most IPPs have not shown any progress and the ministry intends to audit what they have done so far.” said Kambala.

Last month, the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi’s (ESCOM) power substation at Phombeya in Balaka has been earmarked to be upgraded for possible power interconnection with Mozambique and Zambia, as the initiative will promise uninterrupted power supply.
