Additional Financing: Kenya Electricity Expansion Project

Project Description
The objective of Electricity Expansion Project for Kenya are to: (a) increase the capacity, efficiency, and quality of electricity supply; and (b) expand access to electricity in urban, peri-urban, and rural areas. The proposed Additional Financing (AF) would enhance and maximize the development impact of Kenya for the Electricity Expansion Project (KEEP) by supporting: (1) cost overruns related to the expansion of lowcost base load geothermal resources in Kenya’s energy mix; (2) scale-up of slum electrification across the country; and (3) scale-up of technical assistance and capacity building for sector entities. Additional Global Partnership for Output Based Aid (GPOBA) funds for Kenya in the amount of 3 million US dollars have been granted to support the scale-up of slum electrification activities. To allow sufficient time to ensure the completion of the slum electrification and technical assistance activities included in this AF, the closing date of the KEEP has been extended from September 30, 2016 to December 31, 2017.
