Kenya Tops in Reducing Number of Households Without Electricity

Kenya has been ranked as the top country in the world in reducing households without electricity pointing to the impact of the State's focus on rural areas for nearly a decade.

The country's annualised increase in electricity access between 2010 and 2019 was at 5.6% - the largest among the top 20 nations in the world with a huge electricity access gap.

According to the Energy Progress Report for 2021, among the 20 countries with the largest deficits, Bangladesh, Kenya, and Uganda have made the most progress in electrification.
