Chinese state-owned energy conglomerate China Energy Engineering Corp (CEEC) has revealed plans to develop 500 MW of solar generation capacity in Uganda.

The announcement, made to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, did not reveal any details on either project locations or development partners but mentioned a $500 million framework agreement to provide engineering, procurement and construction services to produce the necessary infrastructure.

The agreement includes a two-phase development plan, with CEEC subsidiary China Gezhouba Group International, responsible principal engineering firm responsible for development.

According to a 2018 report published in the International Journal of Scientific and Research Publications, Uganda has very strong potential for solar, with good capacity potential, however, only 22% of its population, had access to electricity at the time of publication.
