Kenya – Potential Grid Expansion Projects

This dataset represents potential grid expansion projects identified through a least-cost geospatial analysis undertaken over the period 2017-2018. Each project (defined by the unique “gis_projec” or “project na”) includes electricity lines, poles, and building structures. Therefore, the dataset includes a combination of several feature types. The shapefile is accompanied by the “Potential Grid expansion project cost.csv”. This csv file includes total number of customers, total cost of grid expansion (in US$), the cost per consumer, etc. for each unique project (again, defined by “gis_projec” or “project na”).
