Scoping study of clean energy demand and technology options in Kenya and Zambia
Sam Bickersteth and Neil McCulloch undertook a scoping study for the Climate Compatible Growth programme. It identified three counties in Kenya and rural areas in Zambia where there is both potential and demand for off-grid energy solutions, taking account of other current projects, local government capability and investment options.
Options were identified based on analysis of existing data and plans and consultations with local stakeholders - both local government and national government as well as financial institutions. Demand assessed community facilities (e.g. health posts and schools), businesses and domestic use.
