Malawi Power Sector Opportunities – $400M in Ongoing Procurements
Only 8% of Malawi’s population has access to electricity. To increase power generation across Malawi, the U.S. Millennium Challenge Corporation signed a $350.7 million compact with the government dedicated to revitalizing Malawi’s power sector.
Procurements under the compact will include the rehabilitation of the country’s hydro-electric generation capacity, the construction of a 400 kV transmission line, the expansion of its existing 132 kV transmission network, the construction of numerous distribution projects, and the implementation of SCADA and IT systems.
Simultaneously, the World Bank is implementing an $84.7 million Energy Support Project aimed at improving power sector efficiency and reliability and supporting energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in the country.
The Roundtable and Luncheon program will provide a forum for companies to learn detailed information about these investments and the procurement opportunities available through the expansion of Malawi’s power sector.

- Introduce the Malawi delegation to relevant U.S. energy equipment, service providers, and manufacturers.
- Discuss opportunities in Malawi’s power sector including upcoming procurements and investments.
