Current challenges and possible solutions in Uganda’s energy sector: (According to Rick St. John)
The current challenges are:
- The shortage of Electricity supply
- Quicker restoration of Electricity supply.
- Distribution Automation helps to minimise permanent faults giving long interruptions and minimizing the number of customers affected from Electricity supply loss. Obviously also helps with the revenue stream being affected from the Electricity producer or Distributor.
