IAEA Gives nod to Kenya to develop first nuclear reactor to sustain clean energy development

The Integrated Nuclear Infrastructure Review for Research Reactors (INIR-RR) was made following a nine-day review mission in Kenya. The team of experts had jetted into the country to assess the preparations made by President William Ruto’s administration towards establishing a nuclear power plant to solve the energy crisis in the country. In its report, the IAEA explained that the assessment was conducted at the invitation of President Ruto’s government. “Kenya has demonstrated a sustained and very professional approach to the development of its research reactor programme,” the review read in part. “We noted that before making the final decision, Kenya did a great job of developing and preparing laws and regulatory documents.” https://www.kenyans.co.ke/news/96327-kenya-gets-nod-launch-nuclear-power-reactor?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=DK&utm_campaign=Promotion

      Nuclear power should be considered within a broader clean energy strategy that prioritizes renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures.

        This move has the potential to enhance the country's energy resilience and reduce dependence on non-renewable sources.
