As East Africa’s leading energy producer, Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) is keen on developing innovative ideas in its quest to deliver affordable electricity to all. The company has been able to implement innovative ideas by mainstreaming innovation into the fabric of its business and also going beyond sporadic light bulb solutions to systematically integrating innovation in its conversations and actions.
It is only through innovation that we can make meaningful change to improve our organization’s programs, services and processes in order to create more value to our shareholders. Innovation often involves challenging rules, routines and assumptions and it depends on both individual creativity and organizational culture.
Innovation is not a one-off exciting activity that one indulges in but a way of life. It’s a mindset of problem solving, researching, experimenting and most importantly implementing. At KenGen we have an environment that fosters innovation by creating room to fail, learn and re-attempt.
KenGen understands the pivotal role played by Open Innovation in development of solutions to challenges that faces the generation of power to drive our economy. We encourage Innovation, Research & Development and commercialization of open innovation from all our stakeholders for the benefit of the organization.
This is guided by Open Innovation Policy.
