A commercial farm in Kenya has become Africa’s first electricity producer powered by biogas to sell surplus electricity to the national grid, cutting the carbon emissions associated with oil-powered generation.
The Gorge Farm Energy Park in Naivasha produces 2 megawatts (MW) of electricity – more than enough to cultivate its 706 hectares (1 740 acres) of vegetables and flowers, and with sufficient surplus to meet the power needs of 5 000 – 6 000 rural homes.
The new plant generates not only electricity, but also heat for the farm’s greenhouses, with fertiliser as a by-product.
