Wind Wire: Policy boost

The Kenyan government says it will increase the flow of electricity from renewable sources. Under the plan, a National Task Force on Accelerated Development of Green Energy will facilitate the installation of an additional 2 GW of green energy projects within the next three years.

Wind will account for 810 MW, co-generation for 600 MW and geothermal for 490 MW. Prime minister Raila Odinga says a green energy fund will be established, pooling World Bank money and other donations, to help finance the projects. An infrastructure fund will mobilise funds of institutional private investors. Other measures include drafting a public-private partnership bill to accelerate the uptake of new projects and an International Green Energy Investor Conference to be held in Nairobi in September.
