KENREC 2016 is designed as a springboard to accelerate renewable energy developments across Kenya.
As Kenya undergoes industrial growth, and sees its electricity demand rise, its vast potential for renewable energy should not be underestimated. Ranked second amongst all African nations for investment in renewables (behind only South Africa), investments in this commercial hub of East Africa totalled $4 Billion US at the end of 2015.
Amid this backdrop of investment, growth and optimism KENREC serves as both a platform for sharing critical business intelligence and senior-level networking. With a targeted, in-depth agenda, compiled following 3 months of research, as well as extensive business matchmaking opportunities, KENREC will help you develop the strategies and partnerships needed to be a part of Kenya’s exciting renewable future.
With Kenya’s ‘2030 Vision’ targeting 5gw of Geothermal Power, 3gw of Wind and 500mw of Solar PV to be grid connected KENREC unites those actively striving towards this goal. Sharing success stories, formulating strategies and unveiling the very latest opportunities to achieve these bold targets through development at utility scale, C&I scale and through off-grid solutions.
KENREC is the one event that unites international and domestic decision makers, bringing together policymakers, public sector leaders, foreign and domestic investors, project developers, Kenya’s major industry, OEMs and renewable technology pioneers under one roof for 3 days of interaction, innovation and sowing the seeds of Kenya’s renewable future.
