Kasama Mumba Egide | Mbangu Tshingej Nene | Kylhauri Asani Deogratias

Abstract: Katanga is located southeast of the DR CONGO, it is a real castle dominated by a steep slope, whose rivers flow from the South, towards the North in the direction of the central basin, these streams are dotted with falls and rapids allowing him to have a rich hydropower potential reinforcement distributed throughout the region. Its installed hydroelectric power is 504MV (SNEL, 2014) so the current production is ............ .. MVA is ................% of its installed capacity. It should be noted that the average electricity consumption is 344 Kwh per inhabitant per year, while that of Sub-Saharan Africa is 534.5 Kwh / Hab / year (PROPARCO, 2013), while the electricity deficit is 500MMW (Ministry RHE RDCongo, 2014) due to the lack of energy policy in our country. Indeed, the increase in electricity production is an essential indicator of economic development, which is synonymous with the improvement of the quality of life and wealth creation (observed, 2013), underlining that in DR CONGO the LAW N ? 14/011 of 17 June 2014 RELATING TO THE ELECTRIVITY SECTOR dedicated to the effective liberalization of the electricity sector still does not attract investment in this sector until today.
