Bukavu, Burundians, DRC, primary source of energy, cooking

Burundi has two small coal-fired generating plants and two small hydroelectric dams, which in 1999 produced 141 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, or 80 percent of the country’s needs. A portion of the country’s electricity is now supplied by hydroelectric facilities in Bukavu, the DRC. However, for most Burundians, wood and other traditional fuels remain the primary source of energy for heating and cooking, providing 94 percent of all the energy used.
