Ignacio Blanco, President & CEO of Univergy Solar has met with the Vice President of the Kenyan government, Rigathi Gachagua, to discuss renewable energy and green hydrogen projects.
Since we started our activity, we have experienced significant growth and we are committed to clean energy in this territory. Currently, Univergy Kenya has a pipeline of approximately 26 MWp in industrial self-consumption projects.
According to the latest Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) Economic Survey, Kenya is on track to be 100% renewable. In 2020, geothermal will lead production with 44%, followed by hydro with 36%. Wind stood at 11%, then thermal at 7%, followed by utility-scale solar and other sources at 1% each.
The African continent is driving a green energy revolution, which will gradually spread to all countries until 100% renewable energy is produced.
Univergy Solar currently has a business portfolio of close to 18 GW in more than 109 solar energy projects around the world, with a presence on the African continent in seven countries, including Namibia, South Africa, Togo, Senegal, Guinea Conakry, Algeria and Kenya.
