The drive towards the use of nuclear power in Kenya’s electricity mix started in 2010 when the National Economic & Social Council (NESC) recommended its use to meet the growing electricity demand. In November 2010, the Government established Nuclear Electricity Project Committee (NEPC) to steer the nuclear energy generation programme. NEPC was later transformed to Kenya Nuclear Electricity Board (KNEB) vide Gazette Notice No. 131, Supplement 156 of 23rd November 2012. The mandate of KNEB was to fast-track the development and implementation of the nuclear power programme in order to enhance the production of affordable and reliable electricity in Kenya. In November 2013, KNEB developed a 15-year roadmap for the Kenya Nuclear Power Programme (NPP). The roadmap identified 22 infrastructure issues to be addressed in the implementation of the NPP.
