This strategy is founded on intelligence from global and regional trends in bioenergy production and consumption and an understanding of the local bioenergy industry status. The document aims to guide development and promotion of bioenergy as a formal industry that can be a vehicle for Kenya’s economic development. It embodies the national and county governments’ renewable energy priorities and intentions to deliver modern energy solutions from available bioenergy feedstock through innovation and consultation. The strategy will support the development of bioenergy to meet the long-term sustainable energy demand. Being the inaugural bioenergy strategy for the country with no precedent, it sets forth guidelines and approaches, and further identifies strategic interventions that can promote the development and sustainable utilisation of bioenergy resources in Kenya over the 2020-2027 period. It identifies strategic interventions to be considered by able actors for implementation and that promise to fast-track the country along the sustainable-energy-for-all pathway. Three key features of the strategy that stand out are: a delivery and coordination mechanism at the Department of Renewable Energy to oversee overall implementation of the strategy; recognition of adaptive planning and multi-stakeholder consultations around innovation platforms; and the critical role of learning and feedback. It is worth noting that this strategy does not set hard quantitative targets (these will be determined by sub-sector stakeholders convening around their innovation platforms) but provides guidance on realisable outcomes over the short- (2020-2022) to medium-term (2023-2027).
