Kenya: The Worlds Microgrid Lab
A summary of the state of the industry and Kenya's role as industry trailblazer.
Kenya shows that the global microgrid market is ready for significant private investment. While there still remain some challenges - especially around the regulatory framework and aggregation of projects - there are now enough businesses with viable business models to provide early stage, strategic or even crowd investors with commercially attractive opportunities. The medium-term growth potential for the microgrid market in Kenya, as well as in other energy access markets including in Africa, South and South-East Asia, is very high.
