Abstract
Hydropower energy is one of most promising clean energy technologies, however this energy technologies has many challenges if compere other renewable energy for example Biomass, solar, wind energy, has high capital investment cost. In Mozambique, access to conversional energy in form of electricity has been limited to most of the rural population. The objective of this investigation research is to analyze the Chua Micro-Hydropower Plant exploration in Manica district in Mozambique and to examine the possibility of increasing energy production. The current total installed power generation capacity in Mozambique is about 939MW. Hydropower contributes 561 MW, making a contribution of 61%, oil contributes 27%, and natural gas 12% of the total... (More)
