Kenya Shows Interest in Joining the Energy Storage Consortium

Kenya is among 9 African countries that have expressed interest in joining Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) Consortium launched during COP28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The consortium focuses to develop advanced energy storage solutions in Africa through collaboration and innovation.

Different nations incorporate Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ghana, Malawi, Mauritania, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Togo who are supposed to get support from BESS Consortium asset accomplices that incorporate the African Advancement Bank(AfDB), the World Bank, the Asian Improvement Bank, the Between American Improvement Bank, the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Africa50 and Masdar.

“The African Advancement Bank is pleased to be at the very front of this groundbreaking excursion, utilizing vital associations and monetary responsibilities to drive progress. As we push ahead, let us stay resolute in our devotion to a cleaner, greener, and more prosperous Africa — one fueled by the boundless capability of environmentally friendly power and the flexibility of the African soul. Together, we can illuminate and control Africa for a long time into the future,” said Dr Akinwumi Adesina, AfDB President.

The consortium expects to arrive at energy capacity responsibilities of 5GW by end of the following year which will thus give a guide to eventually accomplishing 400GW of environmentally friendly power by 2030.

“Without adequate capacity limit, nations will not be able to add sustainable power to their networks at the scale expected to diminish outflows and set out financial freedom. The BESS Consortium is an illustration of the kind of large, intense activity expected to separate the hindrances holding such countless individuals and networks back from joining the environment changes in progress,” added Dr Rajiv J. Shah, Leader of the Rockefeller Establishment and Co-seat of the Worldwide Authority Chamber.

Different nations that are important for the consortium incorporate Barbados, Belize and India.
