Nigeria looks to renewable energy

Nigeria is looking to increase its share of renewable energy towards 2020, according to Renewable Energy Nigeria.

By Kari Williamson

Nigeria has published a draft Renewable Energy Master Plan proposing the establishment of a National Renewable Energy Development Agency (NREDA).

The project has been set in motion to fulfil the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s obligation as part of the African strategy on emission reduction (FME, 2010).

The general aim of the renewable energy 'master plan' project is to reduce emission of greenhouse gases and reduction of poverty, by ensuring that the rural population has access to electricity.
