Abstract


The Katanga Province had an electricity shortage that makes it difficult to exploit the region’s mineral resources. To counter this situation, the government authorities propose the rehabilitation of existing hydroelectric power stations or the construction of other. This strategy has the drawback of causing ecological imbalance through the destruction of fauna, flora and the pollution of water and air. The emission of greenhouse gases also becomes inevitable. Thus, this article aims to draw the Congolese Authorities ‘attention to the disadvantages of such a strategy.

Author Keywords: ecology, Hydraulic power plants, energy deficit, environment, energy.
