Launch of the Kenya 2050 Calculator

The Kenya 2050 Calculator (Kenya Carbon Emission Reduction Tool – KCERT 2050) is being developed by the Kenya’s Ministry of Energy with support from the UK International 2050 Calculator Programme by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The main aim of the UK International 2050 Calculator programme is to support developing countries accelerate their sustainability and decarbonization agenda through the development of 2050 Calculators. The Kenya 2050 Calculator will allow policy makers and other end-users, to answer fundamental questions of how far various sectors of the economy can decarbonize by reducing emissions whilst meeting energy needs. The interactive energy model tool will help answer the following fundamental questions among others:
  • How far could renewables satisfy energy demand in the future and what could be the impact of individual behavior change?
  • How much fossil fuels will we need to import in the future?
  • What is the impact of improved forest management on emissions?
  • Which pathways could achieve net zero emissions target and what is the impact of delaying action?
  • Can we reduce emissions with high levels of economic growth and how much will this cost?
  • How diverse will my energy supply be in 2050 and will supply meet demand?
The programme is led by BEIS with the support of its Delivery Partner, a consortium made up of Mott MacDonald (Delivery Partner lead), Climact, Imperial College London (ICL) and Ricardo. Strathmore University is the downstream partner supporting the Ministry of Energy, Kenya.
