Renewable Energy Portal /Technologies Renewable Energy Technologies Hydro Energy Kenya’s total installed large hydropower capacity is 743 MW. Small hydro potential is estimated at 3,000MW, of which it is estimated that less than 30MW have been exploited and only 15MW supply the grid…Geothermal Energy Geothermal resources in Kenya are located within the Rift Valley with an estimated potential of between 7,000 MW to 10,000 MW spread over 14 prospective sites. Geothermal has numerous advantages…Solar Energy Kenya receives daily insolation of 4-6kWh/m2. Solar utilization is mainly for photovoltaic (PV) systems, drying and water heating. The solar PV systems are used mainly for telecommunication, cathodic protection of pipelines, lighting and water pumping…Wind Energy Kenya’s wind installed capacity is 5.1 MW, operated by KenGen at the Ngong site. High capital cost and lack of sufficient wind regime data are some of the barriers affecting the exploitation of wind energy resources. Moreover, potential areas for wind energy generation…Bioenergy Biogas in Kenya is widely produced with over 8000 biogas plants utilizing various raw materials e.g. agricultural wastes, slaughterhouse waste, municipal wastes…Tidal Energy The only technology that draws on energy inherent in the orbital characteristics of the Earth–Moon system, and to a lesser extent in the Earth–Sun system.
