Powerelec Kenya, which made a smashing debut in 2023, is back in a bigger, better format.

Powerelec Kenya will provide the delegates access to international organizations, suppliers, investors, technology experts, and EPC companies. The show will be a perfect platform for all international and national players to forge partnerships and sign business deals.

Powerelec Kenya is an integrated platform for all the stakeholders in the power sector to network and display products (in power generation, electronics, electrical, services and technology), exchange ideas and understand trends, under one roof. The show will benefit not only Kenya but the entire East African market segment. It is expected to have country pavilions from India, Korea, Turkey, Egypt, among others.

Renewable Sources Sources Sources Sources

Geothermal

Kenya’s total geothermal power capacity is 988.7MW, putting the country in sixth position globally (and first in Africa) in terms of geothermal power development. As a result, Kenya sources up to 91% of its energy from renewables: 47% geothermal, 30% hydro, 12% wind and 2% solar. The country hopes to transition fully to renewables by 2030, with KenGen saying the country has the potential to increase its capacity to as much as 10,000MW of geothermal energy. That would more than match peak demand in Kenya, currently about 2,000MW. Peak time consumption in the UK is about 61,000MW. Solar: As of June 2023, Kenya's solar installed capacity stood at 367.5 megawatts, comprising 212.6 megawatts of grid-interconnected capacity and 154.9 megawatts of captive capacity. The estimated solar potential in Kenya is almost 15000 MW

Solar

Kenya has a high potential for solar power. The government plans to increase the solar energy generation capacity to 600 MW by 2030. The estimated solar potential in Kenya is almost 15,000 MW

Transmission

Transmission: Kenya Power's (KP) system losses stood at 23% as of June 2023, of which half were technical losses from leakages within the transmission and distribution lines and the rest were commercial losses arising from power theft. Kenya Power is set to double the voltage of some of its power lines in Nairobi to reduce technical losses. Of the total transmission lines, about 7,000 kilometers are high voltage, which records the least technical losses. The 82,000km of medium voltage and 200,000km of low voltage distribution lines record the highest losses. For revamping the transmission lines an investment of Sh10 billion is earmarked. The firm is also eyeing Sh40.8 billion ($300 million) interest-free loan from the World Bank. The company aims to reduce the losses to 13.4% in the next three years.

Distribution

Kenya Power is the sole distribution provider that offers both grid and off-grid services. It has more than 9 million customers. The company added 0.32 million new customers in the last financial year ending on June 30,2023. As part of the strategy to improve quality and reliability, it installed more than 13000 transformers last year. Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Corporation (REREC) assists KP in providing electricity to the vast population. Since its inception, REREC has spearheaded rural electrification and achieved 32% electrification of rural households.
