Low-carbon energy development in Nigeria
12th December, 2012

The Nigerian economy depends on fossil fuel extraction and export, yet 60 per cent of its people live without access to electricity or modern cooking fuels. Can a shift to a lower-carbon economy help to increase energy access and reduce poverty? Nigeria’s low carbon policy framework is evolving in response to international obligations and incentives, and the need to develop more options for power generation. As signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol, Nigeria has made international commitments to promoting low-carbon development.

Expanding access to poor energy services in Nigeria
13th December, 2012

Nigeria experiences a remarkable paradox – the abundance of energy resources and widespread energy poverty. Only about 40% of the population has access to the country’s grid electricity. About 72% of the population depends on traditional fuelwood for cooking. Despite this, government financing of energy services that benefits majority of Nigeria’s population has been grossly inadequate. Private sector investments and donor support have not fared better.

Low-carbon Africa: Nigeria

Nigeria experiences a tremendous paradox – the abundance of energy resources and widespread poverty. The country is home to 102 million extreme poor – one-in-four of Sub-Sahara Africa’s total. It is also the region’s largest exporter of crude oil. Today, low access to energy services accounts, in part, for the slow progress against poverty in the country.

The scandal of poverty, suffered by billions of people around the globe, could soon become far worse. It is being exacerbated by the effects of climate change,which are already having an impact in some parts of the world, with an increase in severe tropical cyclones, drought, falling crop productivity, rising sea levels and shrinking glaciers.

How Decentralised Energy Can Deliver Cleaner, Cheaper and More Efficient Energy in Nigeria
4th July, 2009

Energy demand in Nigeria is growing fast and, being a developing country, this trend is likely to continue.Nigeria’s plentiful and varied energy resources are mainly conventional or non-renewable, such as crude petroleum oil, natural gas, coal, tar sand and uranium. However, the country’s current power sector planning process mainly favours conventional centralised gas fired generation. By 2020, this is set to comprise 74 per cent of the country’s total electricity output.
