“This compendium has been developed at the right time when we have joined hands in turn around the woes in the energy sector that have stagnated the economy for a long time,” he said.

Matola said the successful implementation of the projects in the Compendium will assist in the achievement of the aspirations of the Tonse Administration of having energy self-sufficiency for sustainable development.

PML Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Rosemary Mkandawire, said it is important for the country to have the compendium to show the world that Malawi is endowed with a lot of resources that can be used to generate power.

“We are open for energy investment with all the incentives that will attract and be given to the investor ,” she said.
