AGIL Longonot

Longonot Geothermal Project

Kenya is one of the fastest growing and dynamic countries on the African continent. Helping to meet future energy needs is a vital part of Kenya’s social and economic development.  Kenya’s Great Rift Valley contains vast amounts of geothermal resource potential, providing ideal conditions for long-term power generation. These resources provide an opportunity to develop clean, reliable sources of energy and help the country move towards a sustainable energy future. The Government of Kenya has long supported geothermal power production and has set a target to meet nearly half of the country’s energy needs from geothermal power by 2018. Agil is developing a large-scale geothermal power project at Mount Longonot, south of Lake Naivasha, that will significantly help meet this target.
