The quest for alternative energy to crude oil and carbon to meet the ever rising demand and hence the advance in technology and the relatively growing capability of the nations in the region are paving the way forward for the development of the obvious but untapped geothermal energy in the valley.
Once developed, geothermal energy is used as a based load and as a back up to other energy sources particularly to hydro that is affected by climate variations.The near zero CO2 emission, and the renewable nature of the resource is attracting international financial institutions such as the World Bank, the African Development Bank and the USA'S multilateral government agencies through Power Africa Initiative for funding and technical assistance to the countries in the region.
