NAIROBI - The Energy Regulatory Commission in Kenya has revoked AMU Power Company’s licence for the coal-fired power plant that was projected for construction in Lamu County, threatening the region’s rich cultural heritage and vast biodiversity. The decision followed a letter sent last Monday by the National Environmental Management Authority to the company, stating AMU failed to fulfill the conditions to obtain the Environmental Impact Assessment licence.
