“Geothermal power is very cost-effective in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, East Africa. Kenya was the first African country to build geothermal energy sources. The Kenya Electricity Generating Company, which is 74% state-owned, has built three plants to exploit the Olkaria geothermal resource . . . Kenya currently has 636 MW of installed geothermal capacity . . . By 2030 Kenya aims to have 5,530 MW of geothermal power or 26% of total capacity.[1] This will make it Kenya’s largest source of electricity clean energy by 2030.”
