Energy has been singled out as one of the key enablers of the Vision 2030. Energy security therefore remains a matter of national priority and the Ministry is also alive to the fact that expensive energy hinders the competitiveness of our country by raising the cost of doing business. In this regard, energy accessibility and cost are key priorities in the Ministry.
To address the above factors, the Ministry in September 2013 launched the road map for the 5000+ MW program for transforming Kenya.Through this initiative, in addition to scaling up power generation, focus will be on reducing the cost of power by over 40% in electricity for industrial and domestic customers, translating to the increased competitiveness for our economy.
The Ministry of Energy and Petroleum therefore has its fundamental goal and purpose of providing and sustaining quality services, which are geared to satsify the needs and expectations of its esteemed customers. Its aim is to facilitate provision of clean, sustainable, affordable, reliable, and secure energy services for national development while protecting the environment.
