Initial findings for Kenya
- Captive PV is currently competitive and tariffs are expected to go up
- Simplified regulatory environment for self-consumption plants below 1MW
- Clean captive power uptake in Kenya is strong and growing; good potential market in manufacturing industry
- Time-of-Use tariff may or may not affect demand for captive power
- Some bank financing is available thanks in large part to donor support
- Active ecosystem of captive power players including private financiers and Energy Service Companies (ESCOs)
We would like to invite you to join us for a Webinar on Clean Captive Installations for Industrial Clients in Sub-Sahara Africa.
The United Nations Environment Programme, in partnership with its collaborating Centre at Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, is implementing the “Clean Captive Installations for Industrial Clients in Sub-Sahara Africa” Project in four countries: Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. The project aims to demonstrate the economic and financial viability of clean captive energy installations for industries and enhance their adoption of a replicable model in the four partner countries and beyond to the entire continent.
This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of Germany. The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety supports this initiative based on a decision adopted by the German Bundestag. As part of this project, solar commercial and industrial pilot projects will be supported in each of the countries.
For this live Webinar, we will present two sessions on Call for Proposal for Pilot Projects and Kenya overview of the C&I solar market.
SESSION 1 – CALL FOR PROPOSAL
When: Tuesday 15th September 2020 | 9 AM to 12 PM EAT
The first session of this webinar will focus on the call for proposal for the pilot projects that target captive power use in innovative business models, to overcome current barriers within the captive solar market. The session includes the application process, the selection criteria, the timeline, along with an open-ended Q&A session to address all comments from the audience
