Access to modern energy services is vital for poverty alleviation and human development. In Kenya the agricultural sector has significant potential but is hampered by lack of electricity and water availability. From 2011 to 2014, CAFOD and local partners implemented a Community Based Green Energy Project aimed at addressing some of these challenges by providing energy services for rural and peri-urban communities. One component involved providing greenhouses, solar-powered pumping systems and supporting services to 56 women farmer groups. This study reviews the project’s impact on a sample of farmers groups in Kitui county. It uses the CAFOD and IIED ‘energy delivery model’ toolkit to analyse the project’s impacts, using the learning to identify how challenges can be overcome, and future project design improved.
