Strong economic growth and development in our country has resulted in an increased demand for electricity. Due to the increased demand for electricity locally, and the trend of regional power supply shortages, it is anticipated that Namibia will experience severe supply shortages during the next 5 years, until the commissioning of a base-load power station by 2018/9 (a station capable of operating 24 hours a day and which only shuts down when routine maintenance is required or due to unforeseen circumstances). This situation has prompted NamPower to implement various solutions, as listed below, under its Short-term Critical Supply Project to address the shortage of electricity.
