Geothermal background

Mount Longonot
Geothermal power generation involves the use of deep underground steam and hot water reservoirs generated by the earth’s inner heat resource.

Kenya has extensive natural resources of geothermal energy. This energy is trapped up to three kilometres below the earth’s surface, but can be successful captured to provide a source of clean and reliable energy. Geothermal power can help meet Kenya’s growing future energy needs, powering social improvement and economic growth.
