Director of Energy Affairs- Mr. Hastings Chipongwe

I warmly invite and welcome you to this official website for the Department of Energy Affairs. The website provides information on efforts made so far, status   and future plans for improving the energy sector in Malawi. Malawi, just like other countries, considers energy as the main driver of economic growth; improving delivery of social services; creating investment and employment opportunities; and reducing poverty. The country has identified energy as a priority sector in order to stimulate developments in other sectors of the economy such as Agriculture and Industry. These two sectors contribute about 52% of the National GDP with 33% from Agriculture and 19% from Industry.
