  2. 2. Report of the NAEE 2011NAEE 2011 was a key milestone in the Nigeria’s roadmap for energy reform. Our vision isto make NAEE 2012 even better! NAEE 2011 saw participation from 17 countriesrepresenting all 6 continents and 147 companies gathered in Abuja to discuss Africanalternative energy climate with particular emphasis on opportunities, challenges anddevelopments. Several notable speakers and experts from various sectors of thealternative energy sector provided insights.

The Lighting Africa Project introduced their programme designed to setstandards for the fledgling industry, on standards tests, modalities for participation andbenefits. The Project Manager announced the subsidies funded by the World Bank/IFC toensure affordability at the bottom of the pyramid. More on this can be found on ourwebsite www.nigeriaalternativeenergyexpo.orgCompanies from Switzerland, Germany, Uganda, China, India, Japan and of course Nigeriato mention just a few also delighted participants with a retinue of innovative productstailored to meet the subsistence energy demands of Nigerian homes including those off-grid (i.e. not on the national electricity grid). It was estimated that a whopping 30 – 50%NAEE 2011

With the current increase in the priceof fossil fuel suitable energy is the way to go.Regulators were also not left out, with the National Electricity Regulatory Commission(NERC), the Energy Commission, Ministry of Power and Renewable energy programme ofthe ministry of environment all participants at the Expo. A goodwill message was alsoreceived from the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) demonstrating thecommitment of all stakeholders to Nigeria’s energy sufficiency. All these culminated inthe award and presentation of certificates to exhibitors and participants at the Expo onday three – October 19th. For a detailed report on the Expo and a comprehensive brochureon the companies that attended, please see our website address provided herein.At the symposium, this Expo established and resolved that: - In spite of concerted action taken by the various governments and their agencies, a lot more needs to be done and as such, government actions must be complimented by an aggressive industry-led revolution that drives the proliferation of energy solutions right across the nation and continent. - A match must be made between manufacturers, their distributors on one hand, and the financial services industry and the end-users on the other to ensure that much needed products get to those who really need them and are affordable. A microfinance perspective was strongly recommended to catalyze this revolution and ensure maximum spread. - The World Bank/IFC Lighting Africa Project presents a viable standardization process that should be leveraged to ensure quality is delivered to the end-user in order to prevent apathy to much needed solutions resulting from past experiences with non-durable and non-dependable products. It is a shared objective that we must rid homes of toxic kerosene-based products which are doing immeasurable damage to the users. It was also agreed that, - The time for inspired action is NOW including a commitment by stakeholders to invest in community enlightenment programmes and other creative corporate social responsibility initiatives to achieve energy sufficiency, as the impact on education, health and the livelihood of beneficiary communities cannot be overemphasized.The next Event is on the 17th to the 19th September 2012.Find out more at www.nigeriaalternativeenergyexpo.orgNAEE 2011
