Kenya - Overview of Off-grid Electricity Service Areas

This dataset represents the locations of existing mini-grids, mini-grids under development, proposed KOSAP mini-grids, and potential SHS markets in Kenya. This is the output of preliminary GIS analysis funded by the World Bank and undertaken in 2017. Please note that further detailed studies were undertaken to confirm locations of potential mini-grids and SHS markets to be developed as part of KOSAP (P160009) and therefore the locations to be developed may have changed since the time of this analysis.
