About DABS

The Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GoIRA), through its 2006 Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS) set out ambitious three to five year goals for increasing access to electricity. The aim was for electricity supply to reach at least 65 percent of households and 90 percent of non-residential establishments in major urban areas and at least 25 percent of households in rural areas. This would have represented a considerable increase over the rate of electrification – which had last been reliably estimated at six percent nationwide in 2003. More recent estimates suggest that some 25-30 percent of households have access to grid electricity. There appears to be no reliable estimate for the number of people with access to off-grid electricity although there is some 134MW of small hydro, diesel generators and solar power installed.
In 2002, when the new government came into being, donors started to finance rehabilitation and construction of the power system, partly to ensure essential services could be provided and partly because it was one of the things most frequently demanded by people to improve their lives. The North East Power System (NEPS) which serves several of the Northern provinces as well as Kabul has seen significant growth. Most notable are the interconnection with the Uzbekistan power system which allows the import of 150MW and enables provision of 24 hour power to parts of Kabul, and a connection with Tajikistan which allows the import of a further 300MW during the summer time when there is surplus hydropower capacity. Other parts of the country also benefit from imported power, including in the North West and west, which are supplied from the grids of Turkmenistan and Iran. Afghanistan’s current heavy dependence on imports, at about 80 percent of its electricity needs in 2012, is likely to continue to do so for some time.
Responsibility for management and operation of the electricity system rests with Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), the national electricity utility. Until 2009, DABS was a department of the Ministry of Energy and Water. DABS’s corporatization has been accompanied by a strong program of commercialization supported in the early years by the World Bank and USAID.
