Kenya - Global Electrification Platform (GEP)

The Global Electrification Platform (GEP) is a multi-phase project led by the World Bank to standardize and simplify the use of geospatial tools for least-cost electrification planning. The GEP provides a high-level overview of the technology mix (grid and off-grid) required to achieve universal access by 2030. It focuses on the countries with access rates below 90 percent and the 50 countries with the highest population deficit, with an intermediated investment prospectus for 2025. The results of the model indicate the least-cost investment requirements based on publicly available information on demand and existing infrastructure.
