Kenya and Tanzania Electricity Markets

Kenya and Tanzania Electricity Markets

The electricity markets of Kenya and Tanzania are power scarce, with low electricity access and per capita consumption levels. Electricity demand here is set to increase significantly, driven by the economic upturn and increasing urbanisation. Kenya and Tanzania are focusing on utilising their natural gas and geothermal energy resources to meet the growing power requirement, shifting away from dependence on hydro power and costly diesel power. With significant investments anticipated for upgrading the generation, transmission, and distribution infrastructure, the private sector would play a pivotal role in power generation through Independent Power Projects. This research service provides an insight into the current and future developments of the electricity supply industry in these countries and the potential opportunities for future investments.
