Decentralization and Energy in Kenya

This page has been created as an outcome of the discussions initiated during the Half-Day Expert Meeting on County Energy Planning in Kenya: Local Participation and Local Solutions which took place on Monday 16th March 2015 at the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), UN Avenue, Gigiri, Nairobi which was organized by our colleagues in the Stockholm Environment Institute and Practical Action. One of the issues raised during the workshop was the need for a website where materials from the event and, even more importantly, about the range of county-level energy-initiatives underway in Kenya could be shared. This page is the result. If you have further materials that you think should be shared here please let us know by emailing Ed Brown ( or leaving comments in the box below (where you can also initiate discussions around this theme). We are currently looking to secure further funding to develop more activities around this theme so please do check back on this site frequently for further updates and information about future workshops etc.

1. Materials from the Workshop






The meeting brought together around 60 participants drawn from a variety of sectors (including national and county-level Kenyan authorities, donors, international institutions, national and international NGOs and the universities and research centres) to discuss the implications of Kenyan devolution for energy planning and outcomes in Kenya. Presentations of findings from two research projects were followed by a wide-ranging discussion regarding implications and next steps.
