The Government of Kenya intends to provide reliable, sufficient and competitive energy for fast socio-economic transformation of the country as spelt out in the Vision 2030 blue print, Jubilee Manifesto and in line with the national development plans. The “Out of the Box” approach is to work with investors in generating competitively- priced power that will enable Kenya to attract new industrial investors, while safeguarding the interests of existing and potential investors.
The Ministry of Energy and Petroleum will, on behalf of the Government of Kenya, on September 9, 2013, hold an Energy Day at the Kenyatta International Conference Center (KICC). During the event themed 5000+ Megawatts for Transforming Kenya,the Ministry will unveil the proposed Roadmap for provision of more than 5000 MW of electricity in the next forty (40) months.
Key speakers who will address the investors are experts in renewable energy sources; electricity generation, transmission and distribution; geo-exploration and petroleum energy, among others.
Apart from presentations from guest speakers, there will be exhibitions by Ministry of Energy and Petroleum and State Corporations under the Ministry. From these exhibitions, investor will gather detailed information on overall prospective investment opportunities in the energy sector in Kenya including potential power generation sites; energy sources e.g. wind, solar, geothermal, hydro, natural gas, biomass, co- generation. Investment opportunities in petroleum and coal, both upstream and downstream, will also be covered.
Kenya has existing frameworks for investment in various energy sources. For example, there is a framework for Independent Power Producers (IPPs),with seven existing firms. Another five firms are at the implementation stage.The intention is to significantly open power generation to private investors, guided by the already developed power matrix.
Further, the Government seeks to provide reliable, sufficient and competitive energy, as well as increase the commensurate uptake of power, in order to provide for socio-economic transformation of the great nation of Kenya. In addition, Kenya recognizes the high and increasing level of interest in extractive industries due to the recent discoveries in coal, oil and gas, among others.
