Renewables

With the electricity demand in East Africa likely to triple by 2030, undertaking renewables will be crucial to the diversification of the energy sources needed to meet this expectation. Thus, investors’ appetites to finance renewable projects are heightened, as plans are put in place to use renewables to improve energy access in distant areas. However, the issue lies within the perceived technical and financial risks. The Future Energy East Africa strategic conference, takes a closer look at solutions to such issues as well as effective grid management to accommodate the increasing quantities of renewable energy.

Statistics 

  • Kenya aims to invest $400 million per year in distributed renewables until 2021.
  • In Uganda more than 90 per cent of the population is dependent on biomass such as firewood and charcoal to meet their energy needs.
  • Renewables can turn Tanzania into a middle-income country by 2050
