The Congo River's hydroelectric potential is estimated at 100,000 MW, 44,000 MW of which come from the Inga site alone. It has been estimated that the hydroelectric potential of the Congo basin amounts to about one-sixth of the known world resources, but only a fraction of this potential has been harnessed.
