Webinar - Nigeria's Solar Market: Opportunities and Challenges in an Evolving Landscape


06 Feb. 2017 by

The Nigerian energy sector has undergone some drastic reforms in recent years, and the government is more and more actively facilitating the use of solar energy (and other forms of renewables) to meet the huge demand for energy.



2017 is expected to be a very significant year for Nigeria’s Solar Power Market. In the on-grid sector, there have been several PPAs signed with the Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trader (NBET) that should commence construction, and preparations will be underway for a second auction round. In the decentralized / off-grid sector, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) is expected to have finalized a regulatory document for minigrids. Meanwhile, the nascent Solar Home Systems market has seen steady growth, with several players eyeing to move into the space.

In this webinar, as a prologue to our event, our panel of experts explored Nigeria’s solar market and frame the current status of the on-grid and off-grid segments.
