Zambia’s total installed electricity generation capacity is 2,800MW (USAID, 2022), 85% of which is hydropower, which is vulnerable to reduced rainfall as a result of climate change. As such, the Healthcare Facilities Programme represents a significant 0.04% of the entire generation capacity in Zambia. 91 MW of Zambia’s generation capacity is solar (USAID, 2022), so the project represents 1.1% of the country’s solar generation capacity.
