Avec l’énergie éolienne, financée à 70 %, la Banque africaine de développement fait souffler un vent de changement sur le Kenya

Les vents balayant la zone naissent dans l’océan Indien et s’engouffrent dans le « corridor de Turkana » formé par les hauts plateaux d’Éthiopie et du Kenya. Ils soufflent régulièrement à une vitesse de près de 20 km/h, ce qui fait de l’endroit un cadre idéal pour installer des éoliennes.
