Energetic Celebrations for Energy Achievements
May 5, 2019
The recent signing of Energy Bill 2017 by Kenya’s president was a big win for the climate community, and a giant step towards sustainable, affordable and clean energy for Kenyans.
As a way to celebrate and applaud the President for assenting the Energy Bill 2017 into an Act of Parliament, the InPower team held an event this week in the heart of Nairobi. In addition to celebrating, the event created a space to raise awareness about renewable energy, it’s impact on the community, and talk about what’s next.
About 300 cyclists came out to the event, including a lot of families. Also joining the event was the Critical Mass movement, a cycling group that creates awareness around cycling, air pollution, clean cities, and climate change in Nairobi.
Thank you @CriticalMassNbi for turning up for the ride & spreading the message on clean energy access, @KenyaClimate @Hoperaisers ,Redfourth chorus and all who showed up to celebrate clean energy access achievements #ItStartsWithEnergy pic.twitter.com/KtDgPw8rpl

On March 12, 2019 the President signed into law the Petroleum and Energy bills. Today we assemble to support the president for this move that will ensure Kenyans have access to 100% clean, affordable & reliable energy by 2022. #ItStartsWithEnergy #SDG7 @hannipher @InPowerKE pic.twitter.com/binExSy7MM
