Overview The Zambezi River Authority (ZRA), a corporation jointly and equally owned by the governments of Zambia and Zimbabwe, is considering developing the proposed Batoka Gorge Hydro-Electric Scheme (“BGHES”), and is the implementing agent for the proposed BGHES. In 2014, the ZRA initiated some further studies on the proposed BGHES and appointed Studio Pietrangeli (SP) Consulting Engineers to update the Engineering Feasibility Studies, Environmental Resources Management Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd. (ERM) to update and carry out an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), and Ernst & Young (EY) as Transaction Advisors to advise on the financial and commercial aspects of the project. This Project Overview Document (“POD”) provides a broad overview of the BGHES, and has been prepared to assist in discussions with potential public and private stakeholders of the BGHES.
