The Kenyan Investment Authority and Meru County Government (Kenya) have today entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Australian project developer Windlab Limited and Eurus Energy for the development of Africa’s first large scale hybrid wind, solar PV and battery storage project, called »Meru County Energy Park«. The 80 MW energy park will consist of up to 20 wind turbines and more than 40,000 solar panels. The project is expected to inject $150 million in investment to Meru County. It is a flagship project for Meru County Investment and Development Corporation (MCIDC). The facility is being developed in partnership between MCIDC and Windlab East Africa, which is owned by Windlab Limited and Eurus Energy. The project is expected to commence construction in 2021 and Meru County will continue to own part of the project when operational.
