KenGen sets to hold a two-day event that initiates the Nation Media Group, the Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) and the Ministry of Energy.
Top government officials from the Energy ministry, firms in the sector and financial institutions will discuss challenges hampering Kenya’s efforts to scale up the use of clean energy and recommend measures to address the hurdles.
Kenya has in recent years stepped up the use of clean energy like geothermal, wind and solar energy but the country remains short on tapping vast potential.
Kenya is one of the world’s top 10 countries in the use of geothermal energy with 90 percent of its electricity coming from renewable sources notably geothermal and wind.
“The conference will provide Kenya and Africa at large with an opportunity to come up with actionable frameworks and solutions for Africa’s energy transition and security to leapfrog the continent to the next level of socio-economic development in a sustainable manner,” reads a note on the conference.
