How Kenya Plans to Boost Electricity Through Nuclear Energy

Kenya is planning to increase its electricity through the peaceful use of nuclear energy. The east African nation has signed three different deals with China, South Korea, and Russia in a rush to establish a suitable pact.
Kenya has signed two separate deals with two countries on nuclear energy in a race to build its first nuclear power plant of 1,000 megawatts (MW) by 2025.

The new development is expected to increase to 4,000MW by 2033, adding to the country’s energy mix which is projected to be about 19,000MW in total.

Currently, Kenya has a capacity of 2,298MW of energy from hydro, geo thermal and thermal sources.

Last week, the East African nation signed nuclear energy cooperation with Russia and South Korea.
