  • 22. Malawi Water Resources Plan & Malawi Energy Resources Plan 80% of the Short Term (188 of 234 MW ) new energy capacity will be Hydroelectric 71% of the Medium Term (865 of 1,240 MW) new energy capacity will be Hydroelectric 84% of the Long Term (645 of 770MW) new energy capacity will be Hydroelectric NOTE: Wind and Renewable Energy ONLY accounts for 1% of all the new energy needed in Malawi in the next 1 to 20 years!!Malawi Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and the Environment 2010 Global Community Links
