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.
