Drivers for uptake of renewable electrification in Kenya
The first IREK stakeholder workshop took place in Mombasa in February 2015. It brought together different actors in the Kenyan energy sector to share their perspectives about innovation and renewable electrification in the Kenyan context. The IREK research team asked stakeholders to give recommendations on how IREK research could inform the uptake of renewable energy technologies in Kenya.
Representatives from the Ministry of Energy, Kenya Climate Innovation Centre, Stockholm Environmental Institute, Kenya Power and Sollatek participated in the IREK stakeholder workshop. Stakeholders were introduced to the IREK project and asked to provide critical reflections and comments. The IREK Briefing Note No. 1 captures some key highlights and questions emanating from the workshop.
