KenGen To Set Up 30 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

KenGen is set to establish 30 electric vehicles (EVs) charging stations in 2023.

The roll-out is set to be part of the firm’s investments in diversifying its revenues to cover the e-mobility sector.

As a start, KenGen has unveiled its first four electric vehicles which will be primarily used for data collection and policy development ahead of the project’s expansion next year.

“The four acquired EVs will give the company first-hand experience and data on electric vehicles,” said KenGen Acting Managing Director Abraham Serem.

“The EV revolution is here with us. Countries around the world are racing to phase out gasoline and petrol cars.”

The roll-out of the charging stations and the data tracking EVs is expected to guide KenGen’s own transition to convert its fleet from petroleum-powered motor vehicles.

Presently, KenGen has two EV charging stations in Nairobi and Naivasha and plans for three more similar stations in the Counties of Murang’a, Embu, and Kisumu.

KenGen has been diversifying its business away from electricity generation including consultancy on geothermal drilling services in Ethiopia and Djibouti.
