Powering Africa: Nigeria 2016
 
12 - 14 October 2016 
Abuja, Nigeria
 
Getting Electricity Investments Moving  
Renewables - IPPs - Gas - Off Grid
 
 
We all understand the scale of the opportunity in Nigeria, now it’s time to understand the priorities and pace of development. 
 
In the last 12 months Nigeria’s electricity sector has been transformed with the arrival of Minister Babatunde Fashola, Minister for Power, Works and Housing, who has set out clearly his intention to break down the barriers to investment in the country’s energy sector.  Following President Buhari’s lead to tackle bottlenecks and inefficiencies the Minister has embarked on a strategy to get the distribution companies working, providing support and regular interactions with the privately held companies that have worked tirelessly to build the electricity backbone of Nigeria.

It’s now been proven that IPPs are possible with multilateral, international and local banks uniting to deliver what could be perceived as some of the most exciting projects on to the continent. However, it is clear that now is not the time for celebration, now is the time for action and to focus on the next phases such as gas infrastructure, diversifying the energy mix, renewables, energy tariffs, micro grids and off the grid energy, as well as the clear need for billions of dollars of investment in the transmission and distribution networks.

I’m always drawn to the words of England rugby coaching legend Sir Clive Woodward, whose philosophy was to ‘party away the losses and drill down and examine the wins’. I believe that in Nigeria capturing that philosophy to some extent will build momentum among investors, build unity in the sector and rally all stakeholders behind the man who has the greatest potential to date to get electricity flowing throughout the veins of Nigeria, His Excellency Minister Fashola.  Of course the priority for the Government is Nigeria, however the tangible benefits to the region are vast and an energised Nigeria is an empowered region.

With this said, I’m delighted that this October we will be hosting the 5th Powering Africa: Nigeria investors summit in Abuja and look forward to another meeting where we can put your commercial objectives at the heart of the agenda.

   OFF THE GRID CLUB

EnergyNet recently launched the Off the Grid Club, a new membership programme developed to bring together credible off grid technology providers, financiers and regional leaders to invest in and develop reliable and scalable power solutions for Africa. The programme provides a platform for members to form partnerships, giving them the opportunity to scale up their products and bring them to market more quickly. We are currently looking to grow the members of the club to enhance our off grid community. To find out more or to become a member of the Club, please email OTGC@energynet.co.uk

 
Nigeria’s Economy Leading the Way in Africa
 
Nigeria is currently positioned as the largest economy in Africa and is poised to become the largest market in Africa for IPP projects. As the country aims to increase total installed capacity to 20,000MW by 2020 and with the unbundling of the oil and gas sector, and privatisation of the power sector underway, new generation capacity is going to rely solely on private sector investment. Government, public sector institutions, investors and power producers all come together to set a new precedent for African power driven by commercial capital and a commitment to the economic value of power generation.

The Guardian Newspaper LTD

Media partner

 
Media partner 
 
The Guardian is an independent newspaper, established in 1983 for the purpose of presenting balanced coverage of events, and of promoting the best interests of Nigeria. It owes allegiance to no political party, ethnic community, religious or other interest group. Its primary commitment is to the integrity and sovereignty of the Federation of Nigeria, and beyond that to the unity and sovereignty of Africa.
 
The Guardian is a liberal newspaper, committed to the best traditions and ideals of republican democracy. It believes that it is the responsibility of the state not only to protect and defend the citizen, but also to create the conditions, political, social, economic and cultural, in which all citizens may achieve their highest potential as human beings. It is committed to the principle of individual freedom, but believes that all citizens have duties as well as rights.
 
The Guardian does not, in principle, object to the ideology of free enterprise, since this would be inconsistent with its commitment to individual liberty and freedom. But it believes that the state must intervene judiciously in the economic life of the nation, in order to minimise the adverse effects of free enterprise and ensure that less privileged citizens have reasonable and fair access to the basic necessities of life.
 
The Guardian will at all times uphold the need for justice, probity in public life, equal access to the nation’s resources, and equal protection under the laws of Nigeria for all citizens.
 
The Guardian believes that Nigeria is a legitimate member of the international community, but holds that she can best fulfil her international obligations only if her own security and integrity are assured.
 
The Guardian’s logo is the ancient Egyptian symbol for Conscience. The motto, “Conscience, Nurtured by Truth” is inspired by Uthman Dan Fodio’s saying: ‘‘Conscience is an open wound; only truth can heal it.’’
