Kenya Power Report 2019/20 examines the effects of the new Energy Act, signed in to law by President Kenyatta in March 2019, and outlines the market’s attractions and downsides for power developers, financiers and other stakeholders.

Produced by the African Energy consultancy team and first published in August 2019, the report was revised in November 2019 to include a list of power generation projects that are operating, under construction or planned and a new medium-term outlook and analysis (2019-2029):

  • extended demand and supply outlook through to 2029;
  • the potential energy mix over the next decade;
  • a deeper analysis of energy policy development;
  • an examination of the space for renewables and their competitiveness compared to baseload.

The report includes independent power generation forecasts based on the actual project development pipeline, with data drawn from African Energy Live Data – our proprietary database of more than 6,500 power projects and plants.

The pipeline (2019-2024) displays installed on-grid capacity at years-end, and only includes those generation projects which are in development and are considered to have a realistic prospect of reaching commercial operations within the announced timeframes.
