Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, has the second-largest off-grid energy market in the world, trailing only behind India. According to the International Energy Agency, around 77 million Nigerians are either underserved by, or completely lack access to, the national electricity grid. The purpose of this report is to present three different cases in which solar power has caused a positive impact in the lives of those unelectrified communities and individuals in Nigeria.
The report will highlight three companies - Havenhill, Sosai and Auxano Energy - that made it their priority to bring safe, clean and reliable electricity to all Nigerians in need. Each case focuses on a different type of impact, ranging from economic development to educational benefits.
