  2. 2. a RENEWABLE ENERGY INVESTMENT IN NIGERIA – PROSFECT AND CHALLENGES By: Mr. Lawal Y. Gada Project Manager BOI/UNDP AtRE Project; Tel: 08035854295, 08026500526 RE Investment in Nigeria – Prospects and Challenges by: L.Y. Gada. 1
  3. 3. SYNOPSIS Introduction Why Renewables? Global Perspectives Africa’s Overview RE investment in Nigeria Prospects & Challenges Way Forward RE Investment in Nigeria – Prospects and Challenges by: L.Y. Gada. 3 15
  4. 4. Introduction • The potential of Renewable Energy (RE) investment in Nigeria is very enormous . This is due to the obvious gab in the supply of conventional energy coupled with global covenants for Climate Change mitigation and adaptation which tends to promote Renewable Energy development as alternative to conventional fossil fuels that releases Greenhouse Gases (GHG) into the atmosphere, the opportunities for RE investment therefore cannot be overemphasised. • There is no doubt that country has abundant renewable energy resources such as higher intensity solar energy resource throughout the country; large forest and farmlands that can be used to cultivate plants like Jatropha curcus for bio-fuels; wind energy potentials; large number of dams and other water resources that can generate energy through hydropower generation most of which are underexploited.
  5. 5. Introduction Cont... • The global Investment in Renewable Energy across the globe is increasing significantly from $33 billion in 2004 to $211 billion as of June this year, 2011. In Africa, total investments in renewable energy on the continent rose from $750 million in 2004 to $3.6 billion in 2011, largely due to strong performance from Egypt and Kenya which are in the Northern and Eastern parts of the continent. • In Nigeria, investments in renewable energy have a large potential for growth given the large gap between energy demand and supply and the enormous renewable energy options available. This gab can only covered by we (the stakeholders here present: financial institutions and RE service providers).
  6. 6. Why Renewables • Global Warming/Climate Change – UNFCCC Kyoto Protocol • Depletion of fossil fuels (petroleum, coal, etc) – Energy Security; • Escalating costs of conventional sources of energy; • Environmental protection; • Need to achieve key Millennium Development Goal (increased access to electricity). • Africa has the lowest per capita consumption of energy in the world; • Africa’s average energy consumption per capita: 0.66 Tons of Oil Equivalent (TOE) vs 1.8 TOE world average (est. 2008) 6
  7. 7. Why Renewable Energy Options? • The option to close the wide energy demandsupply gap is Renewable Energy. • This is energy supply options from natural resources which can be replenished (infinite and renewable) • Sources include sun, wind, biomass, hydro, geothermal etc. • These sources are found in abundance in Nigeria and it has been estimated that the potential energy that can be generated from these sources is about 600,000 MW.
  8. 8. Barriers to Investment in Renewable In Nigeria  Sustainability question.  Maintenance  Procurement  Branding  Risk Associated with  Security risks  Project risks  Human/personnel risks  Technical risks  Political risks  Policy –law to promote Renewable Energy Options
  9. 9. Barriers to Investment in Renewable In Nigeria (Cont...) Knowledge/awareness  Knowledge to the financial institutions  Awareness by the general public on RETs Capacity  Technical know-how by the service providers  Knowledge by the policy makers Lack of incentives
  10. 10. Way forward Policy to promote investment in RETs Capacity Building for Financial Institutions and RE Services providers Enlightment campaigns to create awareness Synergy between the different financial institutions and Development finance institutions Exploring other funding sources like CDM, CIF, CEF, etc.

  12. 12. a Access to Renewable Energy (AtRE) Project • AtRE Project was initiated in continuation of UNDP’s support to Private Sector (MSMEs) Development and UN’s commitment towards ensuring universal access to modern energy services. • BOI was chosen as the Implementing Agency (IA) for the project because of its strategic position between the Financial Institutions, MSMEs and Government. • The UNDP/BOI AtRE is an intervention project aimed at expanding renewable energy services for rural and periurban MSMEs. • The Project is to facilitate investment in renewable energy options and linkages for enterprise development.
  13. 13. a Expected Outcomes of (AtRE) Project • Improve access to reliable and renewable energy service options for MSMEs • Develop capacity of stakeholders to facilitate investments in renewable energy sector • Establish and maintain policy level dialogue.
  14. 14. a Deliverables of (AtRE) Project • • • • • Increase the number of RE projects in Nigeria Increase the level of RE services accessed by MSMEs Train and build the capacity of project developers Train and build the capacity of financial institutions Capacity development and support for public policy formulation and development at Federal and State level • Develop guidelines and tools based on best practices for disseminating information to project developers, financial institutions and policy makers • Dialogue to influence RE policy development • Dialogue to support RE energy planning
  15. 15. a Benefits of (AtRE) Project • Economic development through empowering MSMEs • Job creation • Poverty alleviation • Financial Inclusion • Achieving the MDGs • Improving the environment • Reducing rural-urban migration
