Incubating climate technology start-ups

The Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC) provides business incubation, training and advisory services, financing, and access to office and technical facilities for companies with innovative ideas to test and develop new approaches for a green and climate resilient economy in Kenya.

Over the last three years we have engaged with 34 renewable energy start-up companies incubated by the KCIC, supporting them with capital-raising, strategic and technical advisory services, project development, financial planning and analysis, marketing and distribution advice.

Remote metering for mini-grids

Some rural communities in Nairobi have access to clean light and power for the first time thanks to a start-up called steama.co. This company’s innovative system for monitoring usage and paying for energy remotely is not only bringing energy to off-grid areas, but it is also helping to make micro-grids a sustainable, commercially viable proposition.
