President Ruto’s full speech in Berlin, Germany on renewable energy transition in Africa

President William Ruto is in toured Germany for a Berlin Energy Transition DIablogue where he called on the European Union (EU) to lift the lid on barriers that the block imposed on the African continent to spur the economy.

His speech touched majorly on the Renewable Energy Transition and noted that the African continent will be the next big thing for the sector partnership with the EU and Kenya will lead the way as a hub, possibly by the year 2030.

Kenya’s national grid is small at just 3 Giga Watts – yet 92% of the power on it, comes from zero-carbon sources like geothermal, hydro, wind and solar. We aspire to reach 100% renewable by 2030 – and to take a quantum leap to 100 GW grid size, 100% renewable, by 2040.

Here is the full speech.
