  Alternative Energy Resources: A Kenyan Perspective
Title: Alternative Energy Resources: A Kenyan Perspective
Author: Othieno, Herick
Appeared in: Energy sources. Part A, Recovery utilization and environmental effects
Paging: Volume 14 (1992) nr. 4 pages 405-410
Year: 1992-10-01
Contents: Kenya's heavy dependence on petroleum has had an adverse effect on its economy, making it difficult to achieve its development goals. Furthermore, the use of fossil fuels is accompanied by emissions of large quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere—a process that is enhancing the greenhouse effect and subsequent global warming and climate change. This article gives an analysis of the Kenya's current energy scene and discuses its alternative energy resources. Although renewable energies are at present not viable substitutes for oil, the development and exploitation of these energy resources will not only reinforce conservation measures but also promote new trends in technology development.
