Solar Energy

Solar energy is radiation from the Sun capable of producing heat, causing chemical reactions, or generating electricity. This can be harnessed using technology including, solar thermal energy, solar heating and solar photovoltaic. Kenya has an estimated solar potential of almost 15000 MW. Out of this, only 1% of the country's potential has been tapped.

Bio energy

Biogas in Kenya is widely produced with over 8000 biogas plants utilizing various raw materials e.g. agricultural wastes, slaughterhouse waste, municipal wastes e.t.c .However the situation is amorphous in the sense that there is no consolidated data on biogas production making it a challenge in determining the country’s overall capacity.

Geothermal Energy

Geothermal resources in Kenya are located within the Rift Valley with an estimated potential of between 7,000 MW to 10,000 MW spread over 14 sites. Geothermal is much better compared to other sources as it is not affected climatic variability; has the highest availability (capacity factor) at over 95 %; is green energy with no adverse effects on the environment; and is indigenous and readily available in Kenya.
