Kenya needs energy. Only 30% of Kenya’s population is connected to the electricity grid, with just 10% of its rural population connected. Under Kenyan government plans, installed generating capacity is to increase from the current 2 GWe to 5 GWe in 2016, reaching 17 GWe in 2030.
By 2025, Kenya will start using nuclear power to meet its growing electricity demand. It will be built by China, and it will have a power of 1,000 MW, that will grow until 4,000 MW by 2033.
Kenya will be the second sub-saharian Country to have nuclear plant (as South-Africa).
