Virunga Power breaks ground on Burundi hydropower project


Recently, our portfolio company Virunga Power broke ground on the upper Ruvyironza run-of-river hydro project in Burundi. The 1.65MW project will bring clean power to the local community and national grid.

At only 2%, the country has one of the world’s lowest rural electrification rates.

In this video, Gridworks Director, Shaun Githuku, and Virunga Power’s Sammy Mwangi share their views on the impact this project will have.
