Kenya Vision 2030 is the country’s long-term development blueprint. It is motivated by collective aspiration for a much better society by the year 2030. The Kenya Vision 2030 aims at making Kenya a globally competitive and prosperous country with a high quality of life by 2030. It also aims at transforming Kenya into a newly-industrializing, middle income country providing a high quality of life to all its citizens in a clean and secure environment.
Energy is one of the enablers of the three pillars of Vision 2030. The level and intensity of commercial energy use in a country is a key indicator of the degree of economic growth and development. Kenya is therefore expected to use more energy in the commercial sector on the road to 2030. As incomes increase and urbanization intensifies, household demand for energy will also rise. Preparations have been made to meet this growth in demand for energy under the Vision.
