Abstract

Rapid population and economic growth in Kenya have resulted in rapid rise in energy demand. The main challenge facing the government is how to meet increasing demand in spite of environmental and budgetary constraints. This paper argues that demand side management and smart grid are the most suitable approaches to the future power demands in Kenya. It raises a question as to whether Kenya’s current energy supply capacity can meet current power demand without installing additional power plants. It concludes that with demand side and smart grid management practices, Kenya may meet its current demand from current installed capacity.
