Energy Planning for Kenya - Fostering decarbonisation strategies while granting access to energy and local development

Energy is considered as the lifeblood of modern society since almost all the economic activities have always been sustained by the discovery of new sources. However, the energy-climate-development nexus has recently raised a debate. This is even more true for Africa, which is rich in resources but still poor in energy supply. Among African countries, Kenya has already committed to investigating renewable energies alternatives in the long run to support the intended decoupling between growth and greenhouse gases emissions. Therefore, the international community should provide increasing support to the transformative path towards a more sustainable, affordable and clean energy supply. The present project intends to support the paradigm shift towards greater universal energy access by elaborating and implementing a model supporting policy choices that could promote growth in Kenya, ensuring at the same time a sustainable use of natural resources.

Main Results and Outputs

Three main results can be achieved through this project. Firstly, the assessment of current National Strategic Plans for different socio-economic sectors for Kenya. Secondly, the support of the country for the impact-assessment of the relative potential implementation actions. Finally, support of the alignment of National Strategic Plans with Global Framework (SDGs, NDCs and Paris agreement). The tools used for this project will be based on open and replicable models which could be potentially applied in other countries of the Sub-Saharan Africa.
