Project to bring renewable energy to low-income communities in Kenya

African SCENe (Sustainable Community Energy Networks) is a 12-month feasibility study that will identify schools within low-income suburban communities in Nairobi that could become clean energy hubs. 

These hubs will generate, store, and distribute clean, renewable energy for the communities in which they serve, accelerating access to adequate, affordable, and reliable light in the evenings and energy for cooking, while simultaneously enhancing awareness and education of those living in the area.

Funded by Innovate UK’s Energy Catalyst Round 9, the study is being delivered by a project team made up of experts from the University of Nottingham, SmartKlub, Edu-Cater Global and FWD.London, with the support of Nairobi-based Map Kibera.
