Perspectives on hybrid PV/wind mini-grids for rural electrification in Kenya

Can the different diurnal production profiles of solar PV and wind power make the combination of these technologies in hybrid mini-grids relevant for rural electrification purposes in Kenya? Why is the uptake of small wind power not increasing concurrently with the on-going mini-grid expansion? What are the barriers and bottlenecks for diffusion of hybrid PV/wind mini-grids? This note highlights the work and findings of a study in which qualitative and quantitative methods were combined to answer these questions.
