Kenya possesses significant potential in geothermal energy and is currently planning to invest in facilities to generate 5,000 MW energy. That’s why Kenya Minister of Energy Joseph Njoroge met with Turkey Geothermal Electricity Plant Investors Association Chairman Ali Kindap to explore cooperation possibilities between the two countries.
Chairman Ali Kindap: “Kenya is one of the most stable countries in Africa both in terms of economy and politics and large scale investments in energy are on the horizon for Kenya. Currently they are planning investments within the next 10 years large enough to generate 5,000 MW and most of these investments are planned to be in renewable energy.
Kenya is one of the top countries in the world in terms of geothermal energy potential. We were able to meet with a lot of government and local officials in our visit. We have presented them Turkish geothermal companies’ competencies and projects. The Minister was impressed with the capabilities of our members and invited Turkish companies to be involved in these new renewable energy projects in Kenya.”
