Kenya’s power infrastructure – September 2022

Kenya power map
Issue 469
03 October 2022

Revised in September 2022, this map provides a detailed view of the power sector in Kenya. The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned are shown by type – including liquid fuels, gas and liquid fuels, coal, geothermal, hybrid, hydroelectricity, nuclear, solar (PV), wind and biomass/biogas.

Generation sites are marked with different sized circles to show sites of 3-9MW, 10-99MW, 100-499MW and 500MW and above. Projects with battery storage are indicated.

Existing and future transmission and distribution lines are shown ranging from 132kV to 500kV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Ethiopia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.

An inset provides greater detail of the region to the north and west of Nairobi, including the cluster of geothermal projects and plants south of Lake Naivasha.

Power generation data was drawn from our African Energy Live Data platform, which contains project level detail on power plants and projects across Africa.

A series of small pies at the foot of the map provide a breakdown of the 2022 presidential election results.

The map is presented as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
