The paper presents a review of current power engineering challenges in Zambia in relevance to the required potential necessary for the country’s modern economic development. An outline of the energy sector is provided. The driving need for enhancing the development of the energy sector is highlighted, accounted by the country’s annual increase of GDP, leading to an increase in electricity demand. Possible mitigations are suggested, with the development of Zambia's rich potential in renewable energy, as well as upgrading the operating power plants and constructing more off-grid and on-grid generating facilities.
