Kenya: Multiconsult to assess floating solar PV potential
Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) has contracted Multiconsult to conduct a prefeasibility study into floating solar PV potential at three main hydropower reservoirs. The study, which is funded by the German development bank KfW, will evaluate the hybrid operation of the Kamburu, Kiambere and Turkwel hydropower plants with floating solar PV in order to optimise water usage and power production and contribute to a more flexible and sustainable energy system.
