Feature - Kenya: Full Steam Ahead
Jonas Bendiksen
The Rift Valley holds a treasure buried several kilometers beneath the earth's surface: geothermal energy which could provide an answer to the continent's energy shortage. Currently around 600 million people in Africa lack access to grid electricity, with the figure expected to rise to 700 million by 2030. The continent is increasingly looking to alternative energy sources to bridge that gap.
