dc.description.abstractDespite technological developments and economic viability for several Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) in Kenya, this technology has so far only tapped a small fraction of its potential. This is due to the existence of several types of barriers to the utilization of renewable energy sources. This thesis focuses on the identification of these barriers and possible ways to overcome them, with special reference to RETs in Kenya. Findings reveal four categories of barriers to the development and deployment of these RETs. These barriers are: financial, institutional, social and environmental and technological barriers. The study has explored the role of social capital embedded in civil societies and private institutions, as being paramount to the development and dissemination of RETs. Cooperation between the government and the civil society is inevitable, if RETs development and dissemination is to be achieved in Kenya.eng
