The Lake Turkana Wind Power Project is Africa’s largest wind farm, producing up to 310MW of clean, renewable energy, that is injected into the Kenyan national grid. As a FINNFUND backed project, FINNFUND sought to find out the socio-economic impact of the Wind Farm in Marsabit County, Kenya where the farm is located.
This included impact to the surrounding area and communities, as well as Wind Farm employees. The study was conducted by NIRAS Kenya, and it was conducted over a period of four months between December 2019 and March 2020 with field data collection between 29th January through 6th February 2020.
