“Kenya’s Nationally Determined Contributions identify the energy sector as a priority with high potential to cut down emissions. It is clear that county governments will benefit from the support of this project.” - Jonathan Hedgecock, Head of Electricity Infrastructure Sector, Ricardo AEA
The project looked to build the capacity of Baringo, Migori and Tana River county governments to improve electricity planning and support Kenya’s goal of 100% access to electricity by 2022. It equipped these counties with tools to develop a bottom-up, decentralised approach to electricity planning and promote new investment in low-carbon electricity generation. This included mini-grid and off-grid solutions, taking advantage of the natural resources within each county, such as biomass, waste, solar, hydro and wind.
