Nuclear Power and Energy Agency (NuPEA) aims to educate the public about its quest to introduce the application of nuclear power technology for electricity generation in the Kenya. As part of this objective, NuPEA is committed to involving a wide range of interested parties in the decision-making process of developing the nuclear power programme for the country. This is in order to enhance public awareness and understanding of the subject, aa well as build and sustain confidence in this pursuit.
Professional bodies are mapped as part of the key stakeholders of the nuclear power development in the country. It is for this reason that saw NuPEA among the sponsors of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK) 37th Annual Seminar. The event was held at Sarova Whitesands Hotel Mombasa from 24th to 28th May, 2021. The week-long event themed: Resilience and Reinvention- Embracing Change and Transformation brought together over 2000 accountants from various parts of the country.
NuPEA’s participation in the ICPAK 2021 edition, both as a corporate sponsor and exhibitor, provided an ideal platform to engage with the Accounting professionals. Of interest to the delegates who interacted with NuPEA during the event were discussions focused on the funding and financing aspect of nuclear power projects, in particular what strategies Kenya has put in place to address it. The Agency intended to help this stakeholder group to understand varied nuclear energy issues; uses, benefits, safety, security, environmental, and the larger roadmap for the nuclear power programme in Kenya.
