Integration of non-programmable renewable energy in Kenya

Integration of non-programmable renewable energy in Kenya

The RESFORAFRICA Foundation commissioned CESI to examine the integration of renewable generation into Kenya’s power system.

Kenya’s renewable energy vision creates significant opportunities for private investors, but also needs technical investigations to identify possible issues in relation to the operation of the power system and what network reinforcements may be necessary to enable the connection of the new renewable power plants while ensuring the security of the network.

The study included the following activities:

  • Provided an assessment of the maximum amount of non-programmable renewable generation that could be installed in Kenya without compromising the reliability, integrity and efficiency of the power system
  • Executed reliability and market-based analyses to assess the benefits to the Kenyan electric power system of integrating new renewable energy capacity and the impact it will have on the cost of energy

Evaluate the ability of the transmission and sub-transmission system to transport the power generated by the new renewable power plants
