Energy and Water Minister, João Baptista Borges, announced at the opening session of the 9 th Consultative Council of the Ministry of Energy and Water, that Angola will have an average electricity coverage rate of 50% by 2022, with each province exceeding 25%. Angola plans to rise the electricity coverage from 73 to 116 municipalities by
2022.

“Although just under 40% of the population has access to electricity, in recent months there have been changes in the production, transmission and distribution system with major economic and social impact as a result of the North/Centre interconnection,” the Minister said.
