Dissemination of Solar Energy Technologies for Rural Electrification in Kenya – Challenges & Opportunities

  Understanding the challenges and opportunities in the solar energy technology value chain is essential for key actors in order to disseminate these technologies for rural electrification in
Kenya. Once the challenges and opportunities have been identified, it is essential to understand how these challenges can be overcome. This was one of the key messages emerging from the solar energy stakeholders’ workshop at the Desmond Tutu Conference Centre in Nairobi on 11th June 2014. The workshop was organized by the African Centre for Technology Studies (ACTS) as part of The Energy & Resource Institute (TERI) project. The workshop brought together
experts from the practical and academic sides of this topic, to explore the current issues, identify barriers, and possible solutions regarding large scale dissemination of solar energy systems. A summary of the challenges and opportunities identified and key recommendations made during the seminar are detailed at the end of this report.
