USAID INVEST Close-Up: Expanding Investment in Off-Grid Energy Access in Kenya


In sub-Saharan Africa, an estimated 600 million people live and work without regular access to electricity. Power Africa, a U.S. Government initiative coordinated by USAID, aims to enable energy sector transactions between public and private investors to increase access to electricity across the continent.

By partnering with USAID INVEST, an initiative that mobilizes private capital to achieve development outcomes, Power Africa has increased access to solar home systems and mini-grids in areas across Kenya where access to grid electricity had previously been nonexistent or prohibitively expensive.
