Nuclear Power

In 2017, the Kenya Nuclear Electrification Board (Kneb) estimated that a 1,000 MW nuclear plant could be operational by 2027 and cost Ksh500-600 billion ($5-$6 billion), to be located near a large body of water, such as the Indian Ocean, Lake Victoria or Lake Turkana.

Hydro Power

Hydroelectric power in Kenya currently accounts for about 49% of installed capacity, which is about 761 MW. However, the Kenyan Government is strongly pushing for a shift to other alternative resources of electricity generation. By 2030 hydro power will only account for 5% of total capacity at 1,039 MW.

Wind Power

Kenya stands tall amongst African countries when it comes to wind energy production. Its claim to fame is the Lake Turkana Wind Plant (LTWP) which has a capacity of 310 MW. The project is the largest of its kind on the continent with 365 wind turbines each of a capacity of 850k

Solar Power

Kenya is set to add 80 MW of solar power to the national electricity grid in 2021, the energy regulator said on Friday. Solar energy is also a cost-effective way to ensure universal electrify coverage, especially in the arid and semi-arid areas, in the country.
