Why Kenya? – Investing in Kenya’s Renewable Energy

With his His Excellency, President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, Richard Branson (Founder, Virgin Group), Jacqueline Novogratz (founder and CEO, Acumen), Chris Anderson (curator, TED Conference) Dipender Saluja (Capricorn Investments), Steve Jurvetson (Draper Fisher Jurvetson), Jean Oelwang (CEO, Virgin Unite), Bob Collymore (Safaricom) and Zia Khan of the Rockefeller Foundation.

We explored how to make the most of Kenya’s abundant potential for green energy. The proposed renewables project would benefit the 50% Kenyans who are yet to access electricity. As Investors in this initiative we have chosen Kenya because the Government is ready to listen to ideas and help implement them. The project would cover Kenya and Rwanda, before being rolled out to other parts of the African continent. Both countries will serve as models.
