African Energy Reports

Kenya Power Report 2019/20 is the second in a series of easy to digest studies presented by African Energy’s consultancy team. The reports provide instant market intelligence to those seeking new opportunities or for those looking to refresh their knowledge of Africa’s ever developing markets.

Data tables are based on generation project pipeline data sourced from African Energy Live Data. 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.

The first report focused on Ghana. The next report in the series will focus on Egypt.
