Lake Turkana - PensionDenmark
In 2007 a group of international investors came up with the idea of establishing a wind park close to lake Turkana. 12 years later 365 wind turbines from Vestas are producing power to Kenya.
On average, the turbines deliver around 150,000 megawatt hours per month; approx. 15% of Kenya’s total electricity production.
The production of fossil-based energy is more than halved from around 230,000 MW hours in January 2018 to around 100,000 MW hours in January 2019.
Investment through the Danish Climate Fund, established in 2014 in collaboration with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, IFU, Pension Denmark, PKA, PBU, Dansk Vækstkapital and Aage V. Jensen Foundation.
