The Tanzanian government, through its geothermal development company, plans to generate 200 MW from the newly discovered underground source of energy by 2020.

The plan is contained in geothermal development targets and strategies to be implemented by Tanzania Geothermal Development Company Limited (TGDC), which was established in 2013 and became operational in 2014.

TGDC general manager and chief executive officer Boniface Njombe said preparations have already started to ensure the plan is achieved. The projected 200 MW is part of the 5000 MW estimated potentials of electricity that can be generated from geothermal.
