The launch of a new business hub in Nairobi is a great reminder that Energy IT and sustainability is a global concern: The Kenya Climate Innovation Center (CIC) has opened with the goal of developing climate technology startups in the East Africa region and generating 24,000 new jobs in the next decade. CapitalFM reports:

The centre is the first of its kind in the world and it is expected to provide an integrated set of services, activities and programmes that empower Kenyan entrepreneurs to deliver innovative climate technology solutions, while offering financing and other services to a growing network of climate innovators and entrepreneurs. The CIC is supported by the World Bank’s infoDev in partnership with the government of Denmark and Britain’s UKAid, as an innovative model to accelerate locally owned and locally developed solutions to climate change.
