The NAMA focuses on providing energy access to people living in rural Kenya, while at the same time creating and building momentum for a market for clean energy technologies.
Back in 2013, under the Mitigation Momentum project, the government of Kenya had requested continued support for NAMA development, and more specifically, the development of a NAMA for renewable energy, aligned with the Kenya Vision 2030, the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP), as well as the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative.
This new NAMA foresees the manufacture and distribution of 1 million units of solar PV-based lanterns and improved cookstoves respectively in Kenya using an innovative market-based approach.
28 energy productivity zones are to be established across the country that will provide infrastructure and support services for the private sector to invest in manufacturing and distributing clean energy technologies on a for-profit basis. These zones will be self-sufficient in their electricity requirements thanks to a solar power plant with a total capacity of 500KW.
