In this 4th webinar on geothermal industrial parks for Africa, USEA and USAID are featuring Neil Hellings of Oserien to present the case study of the Two Lakes Industrial Park in Kenya.

The U.S. Energy Association (USEA) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) invite for the fourth installment of the Geothermal Industrial Park webinar series presented by the U.S. – East Africa Geothermal Partnership (EAGP).

  • Date: November 17, 2020
  • Time: 7:00 EST (3:00 pm EAT)

In 2017, Oserian conceived the idea of a Sustainable Special Economic Zone (SSEZ) known as the “Oserian Two Lakes Industrial Park.” After the creation of the industrial park, Two Lakes Energy was established to oversee the development of geothermal energy on the SSEZ. Already, there are three tenants operating and another is about to begin construction on the industrial park. Two Lakes is also host to 1 MW of Solar PV and a Proof-of-Concept BioGas Plant is currently being constructed.

In this webinar, Neil Hellings of Oserian will present a case study of Two Lakes Industrial Park, covering topics such as direct use geothermal, obstacles for establishing industrial parks, and solutions to create economically viable industrial parks.
