Needs and possibilities for green energy in East Africa

15.05.2014  07:55

Check out our new film about green energy in East Africa. The film describes the potentials for Danish green-tech companies, who are interested in doing business in East Africa.

The need for green energy in Africa is enormous. The consequences of polluting energy sources and global warming are vibrant, and if no action is done, it can end tragically. Even though Danish companies are leading in the world, when it comes to developing green technology, only a few of these companies have jumped into the East African emerging market.

The most vital challenge in East Africa is sustainable energy, but a match between the Danish knowledge and the Kenyan needs can solve this challenge. Energy supply is stunting the growth and therefore the timing is right taken the readiness of the country into consideration, both regarding legislation and experience with foreign investment.

However, the right network and partnership is crucial, before you enter this new market. Local partners, the Kenyan government and the Danish companies can create partnerships, which can create green energy solutions, but also more jobs in both Denmark and Kenya.

The film is produced by Brodersen Kommunikation for access2innovation with support from Ministeriet for Forskning og Innovation, Den Europæiske Regionalfond and EnergyVision.
