Innovation and Renewable Electrification in Kenya

Projektdetaljer

Beskrivelse

As the global climate change regime moves ahead towards 2020, there will be increasing investments related to climate change mitigation and adaptation in poor countries. Substantial opportunities for funding of low carbon innovations will arise particularly in Africa. Ensuring that the most adequate technologies are selected and that they are diffused and used in such a way that the outcome is better living conditions for the population is a major challenge. This project studies two specific low-carbon technologies – small scale solar PV and wind power – and it takes as a starting point a focus upon the role international sources of knowledge can play for Kenya. It will explore whether actors originating from China have the potential to provide particularly relevant low carbon technologies that bring benefits to the poor in Africa as compared to actors from Denmark and Germany. As the next step it will study what kind of public policies, institutional settings and participatory organizational forms are necessary to realize such a potential.
