  • From fire to flowers - Kenya`s renewable energy cycle

    The landscape around Navaisha town, about an hour's drive from Kenya's capital, Nairobi, is doctored with snaking smooth white pipes and steel drums rather like a modern day snakes-and-ladders set built into the steep valley escarpments, just below pockets of billowing steam floating into the air. Glance down towards the expanding Olkaria Geothermal Power Station, probably the world's only energy ...
