Kenya and Ethiopia are frontrunners in the region when it comes to adding
wind power to their power generation capacity and there is high interest from
project developers. The chapter uses the lens of ‘interactive learning spaces’ to
understand how interactions between different stakeholders in a megaproject can
lead to the accumulation of technological and managerial capabilities. The two
projects offer interesting and different examples of the types of learning spaces in
which the transfer of both formalised and tacit knowledge can occur. The chapter
argues that it is important to understand and deliberately create and nurture
such interactive learning spaces in order to spur and sustain local skills upgrading
and capability-building in connection to large infrastructure projects based on
imported key technologies.
