Abstract: Solar energy coupled with energy efficiency awareness can be an important step to achieving the final goal of having a sustainable environment in the country. Together with a good energy policy including regulations, this goal can be achieved as it will help consumers make more rational decisions when it comes to new technology. A key problem identified in this work is the lack of awareness and strict energy policies. The current funds put in place are not mobile and have not got to a large number of people. The government’s regulations on the other hand are not strict. This report aims to improve the current status by suggesting strategies to reach out to as many people as possible and educate them about solar energy options in Kenya. It aims to prepare to build a platform that creates awareness on solar energy, energy efficiency as well as the policies and finances needed to support their uptake. In order to build this platform, analysis has been done through research and meetings with stakeholders who have provided first-hand information in order to formulate the foundation to a future platform. The information gathered has then been used to explain and meet the challenges faced in solar energy in Kenya. The conclusion of this project was that majority of the people in Kenya lack required knowledge about solar energy. There is need to create awareness in solar energy.
