Potential

  • The country's electrical power demand is high but actual generation is considerably below demand, as a result, Nigeria has experienced an energy supply crisis in recent years. The country is looking towards further development of the country's hydropower resources to curtail the crisis.
  • The World Bank has approved a US$100 million credit to Nigeria for its Transmission Development Project aimed at addressing inefficiencies in the power transmission and dispatch sub-sectors. The project will involve the restructuring of the National Electric Power Authority (NEPA), establishing a Transmission and System Operation Company with private sector participation, removing transmission network and system operations constraints to the provision of a stable power supply and developing an efficient wholesale power market.
