Energy sector in Uganda and Kenya | étude du secteur réalisée par Monsieur Ivan Korsak, Attaché économique et commercial en poste au Kenya.
The electricity generated comes from Hydro-Power (77%), Thermal (20%) and Biomass (3%). The power sector underwent extensive sector reforms and the Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) was established in 1999 as an independent sector regulator. The state-owned Uganda Electricity Board has been ‘unbundled' into separate entities responsible for generation, transmission and distribution, and the generation and distribution facilities have been commissioned to the private sector. The number of urban and rural households with direct access to electricity has been increased. The government has promoted grid and off-grid private-sector-led rural electrification and established a Rural Electrification Agency (REA). Least-cost power investments have been pursued to provide adequate and reliable service. The Ugandan government has also collaborated with the East African Community on regional power interconnection. This regional approach is expected to benefit all countries involved by diversifying supply sources and reducing investment costs. Today, distribution is regulated and cost-reflective tariffs are utilized, with 54% of power generation coming from independent power producers (IPPs).
Currently there is enough power in the country but with the projected increase in demand, the country may have to resort to load shedding again. For this reason, the government is in the process of setting up more dams such that by 2020 there will be an addition of at least 1 396 MW of power on the grid. Overall the country suffers of power cuts, of poor transmission and distribution infrastructure and planning for modern energy supply has been limited mainly to urban and semi-urban areas. Also Hydro power stations are not generating at full capacity: The Nalubaale and Kiira dams are operating below capacity due to old malfunctioning machinery and decreasing water levels.
Electricity in Kenya is generated from geothermal (47% of consumption), hydropower (39%), thermal (13%) and wind (0.4%). Kenya's current installed electricity capacity is estimated at 2.4GW, 1.5GW of which is grid-connected and 500MW of which has come online since mid-2014. Since hydropower accounts for a large percentage of this capacity and is reliant on unpredictable weather conditions, the frequency of power outages is high at 33%. The cost of energy in Kenya is also high at US$0.150 per kWh, almost four times the cost of energy in South Africa (US$0.040).
There are approximately ten IPPs in operation4 and they account for about 24% of the country's installed capacity, up from 11% in 2008. One of the key components of the Kenyan government's energy strategy is a strong emphasis on the participation of private investors in the development of the electricity sector, so the current trend is likely to continue, at least in the medium term. However, there are concerns about the low efficiency of power production by IPPs.
Although hydropower accounts for a large proportion of energy production in Kenya, its unreliability has pushed the government to favour wind, thermal and geothermal generation :
- Geothermal: Kenya is accounting for 7 of the 15 gigawatts of potential geothermal energy in Africa. In fact, it is the world's 8th largest producer of geothermal energy. Additionally, high subsurface temperatures make it cheaper to produce geothermal energy here.
- Wind: Kenya is home to Africa's largest wind power project (the 310MW Lake Turkana Wind Farm) as well as a further 900MW in development or online.
- Coal: The energy mix in Kenya may change with the exploitation of a 400 million tonne coal mine discovered in the Mui Basin, which is expected to power the operations of two new 960MW power plants by 2017. The US$34bn mining concession was given to Fenxi Mining Group in 2012, and a Chinese consortium was given mining rights to the coal mine in 2015.
Rise in demand is growing faster than the ability to install additional generation plants. Over-dependence on hydro-power, which exposes the country to power rationing due to extreme weather conditions that result in drought. Shortage of transformers and overstressed distribution network. Dependence on donor funding for various projects. Inadequate transmission and distribution network. Conflict with food security issues when developing the bio-diesel industry just to mention a few.
