Light Up Nigeria Programme

  2. 2.    LIGHT  UP  NIGERIA Mission Ø  Set up an Organizing Committee to oversee the Light-up Nigeria Program and in collaboration with private partners, extend electricity to the rural areas and Light-up Rural Nigeria by means of Alternative Energy: Solar, Wind, Hydros, Biomass, etc., to satisfy the basic need of rural dwellers and reap the benefits of electricity in the socio-economic development of Nigeria Ø  Install non-grid decentralized mini solar or wind power generation plants to provide energy efficient lighting and power needs of few hundred kilowatts(less than 1MW) to light up pilot homes/streets of communities in select LGAs of the Federation in the short term (6 months) with a goal of lighting up most communities in 232 LGAs, about 30% of the 774 LGAs, by December of 2014, depending on the availability of funding. 2
  3. 3.    LIGHT  UP  NIGERIA Mission Cont. Ø  Provide improved/less expensive lighting for rural dwellers using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) energy efficient lighting systems Ø  Provide strong science and engineering capability to the Power Generation market in Nigeria Ø  Market Light-up Nigeria Program to attract foreign investors and gain market share in the global power sector Ø  Help foster clean energy job creation 3
  4. 4.    LIGHT  UP  NIGERIA Why Light up Rural Nigeria by means of Alternative Energy And Consider Renewable Energy As A Supplement To Power Generation In Nigeria? 1) Complements President’s Power Sector Reforms 2) In line with Global Drive for Renewable Energy/ Green Technology 3) Major Energy Companies Worldwide Are Adopting Solar or Wind Power Generation As Alternative Energy Technology 4
  5. 5.    LIGHT  UP  NIGERIA Complements President’s Power Sector Reforms: Ø  Though electricity is a necessity for rural dwellers, it is almost impossible to extend the grid to all rural areas of the nation. This leaves a majority of Nigerians who live in the rural areas without access to electricity Ø  Providing access to electricity through alternative energy means is a technology of necessity for Nigeria Ø  Fortunately, Nigeria is endowed with abundant natural resources, like the sun, wind, hydros, etc. Ø  As an alternative energy, solar and wind power generation will be a practical alternative to supplementing electricity supply in Nigeria “” 5
