Kenya: What next for the energy sector?

Africa Investment Exchange: Kenya roundtable

20 September 2022 to 20 September 2022


12h00 to 13h30 BST (GMT+1)

A roundtable discussion of the recent elections in Kenya and their implications for the energy sector.

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government set out an ambitious reform agenda epitomised by the 2019 Energy Act and has made major advances in electrification. But he leaves a legacy of strained relations with the private sector and a critical utility in Kenya Power which still needs close attention. Implementation of the act remains slow.

The roundtable looked at:

  • What the election means for the liberalisation agenda.
  • The future for efforts to bring down the cost of power, including PPA renegotiations and review as well as interventions in the energy mix such as LNG and accelerated geothermal.
  • Efforts to increase electrification and make the process more sustainable.
  • Investment in transmission, distribution, and interconnections.


The roundtable was chaired by African Energy's Dan Marks and featured key contributions from:

  • Khilna Dodia, CEO, Kenergy Renewables
  • Orli Arav, Managing Director - Head of Debt Funds, Lion’s Head Global Partners
  • John Kimotho, Investment Manager, AIIM
