      Elly Olomo, Jasper Okino
Abstract: Uganda is one of the countries with the fastest growing populations in the world and a GDP growth rate of 5-6% p.a. for the last two decades. The county’s Vision 2040 agenda outlines the countries aims to attain an upper-middle income status by year 2040 and among the targets set forth is the electricity generation target of 41,738 MW. Of these a significant fraction is to be generated from renewable energy sources such as hydro power (4,500 MW); geothermal (1,500 MW); solar (5,000 MW); biomass (1,700 MW) and wind. This Vision is also outlined in the country’s blueprint Renewable Energy Policy for Uganda of 2007.
