Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) and Konza Technopolis Development Authority (KoTDA) have started construction on KenGen’s Green Energy Park.

Located in Olkaria, Naivasha, the 342ha Green Energy Park will include a mix of industrial and non-industrial facilities such as offices, data centres, research and development centres, hospitality spaces, a visitor centre, and administrative and commercial amenities.

The new master-planned development aims to offer a sustainable and clean supply of geothermal energy as well as encourage industrialisation in the region.

With the ground-breaking, the park’s pioneering investor, KoTDA, has initiated plans to build an Eco Cloud Data Center within the park.

KenGen board chairman Julius Migos Ogamba said: “The partnership with KoTDA and the initiation of the Green Energy Park highlights the power of collaboration and the potential for positive change.

“This venture represents the first step towards a new era of industrialisation, one that places environmental sustainability at its core.”
