The energy production in Tanzania mainly comes from hydropower (42%), gas (36%) and thermal energy (21%). Since 2011, there have been large discoveries of gas in Tanzania - in total estimated to be 1.4 trillion m3 natural gas. In August 2016, the government announced plans of investing USD 30 billion in establishing a large gas plant in the South-East of the country.Food:
The country struggles with low productivity, inadequate infrastructure and weather-related shocks. There is a large demand for food processing equipment to increase productivity and supply. The dairy sector in Tanzania account for around 80 dairy plants, while 20 years back there were only seven. However, most of them are underutilised. Within the dairy sector, there is a large demand for technology and equipment to upgrade the production.
In Ethiopia the energy supply comes from water and biomass (92%), oil (7%) and hydropower (1%). The oil and gas sector in Ethiopia is currently at a very early stage of development, and the sector shows good potential for development on the long-run. According to the government, the country will begin to produce 4.7 trillion cubic meters of natural gas over the next years from the two Calub and Hilala fields.Food:
The sector is challenged to increase the production through modernisation and productivity improvements. New technologies are required for this modernisation. Within food and agribusiness, there is an intense focus on ‘greening’ the sector – meaning to promote climate smart agriculture.
