To solve these problems, the country is striving to exploit its renewable energy potential, among other efforts. This paper highlights the prevailing energy situation in Tanzania and provides a short review of potential energy resources. It then discusses current institutional efforts and capabilities in development, and commercialization of renewable energy technologies. The paper also identifies some barriers to promotion of renewable energy technologies as well as actions taken by the government of Tanzania to promote renewable energy technologies.
