Sustainable utilisation of Nigeria’s gas and renewable energy resources - project summary
Nigeria has vast oil and gas reserves and abundant renewable energy potential. Yet the country is suffering an energy crisis, which has a major impact on its ability to reduce poverty and achieve the MDGs. This project has been conceived to ensure access to modern energy services in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. The objectives of the project are to catalyse the development of natural gas and renewable energy markets and sustainable community-based energy facilities within and beyond target communities and the target states, through policy reform and by demonstrating that alternative community-based energy facilities can provide sufficient power for meeting rural and urban community needs.
