              There have been constant calls by energy consumers and other stakeholders for improvement in the situation as they believe the quickest way to energise the nation’s comatose economy is the adoption of renewable power delivery. According the Special Adviser to Ogun State Governor on Energy, Chief Taiwo Fagbemi articulated the objectives of the hosting the exhibitions thus:
              • To create the awareness of all stakeholders of the need to focus on adequate and affordable power supply from renewable resources
              • To promote and utilise renewable energy delivery and create economic empowerment and transformation in the life of the rural and urban population in terms of employment creation, infrastructure in education, health and transportation services
              • To assess available energy technologies being showcased and choose to partner with in line with the credible partnership options the governor is providing through a variety of incentives.
              • Undertake energy audit of the state with the experts in collaboration with the Energy Regulation Commission and identify the various energy needs of the predominantly rural communities dependent on agrarian economy in the state’s 20 Local Government Areas and determine the most efficient ways of meeting such demands.
              • Determine how the state could meet its shortfall from current meagre 30 to 40 MW from the national grid to augment to its target of 1,000MW to meet economic expansion.
              • To interact with the foreign investors and assess their various options in energy solutions and they could contribute in the development of the state.

              • Report of the NAEE 2011

              • NAEE 2011 was a key milestone in the Nigeria’s roadmap for energy reform. Our vision is to make NAEE 2012 even better! NAEE 2011 saw participation from 17 countries representing all 6 continents and 147 companies gathered in Abuja to discuss African alternative energy climate with particular emphasis on opportunities, challenges and developments. Several notable speakers and experts from various sectors of the alternative energy sector provided insights. Topics and papers covered during the symposium can be downloaded from our site.

                The participation of the World Bank/IFC programme – the Lighting Africa Project, promoted several rigorously tested products that represent the effort to ensure that quality standards are entrenched, and that the end-user who is often vulnerable, only gets the best. The Lighting Africa Project introduced their programme designed to set standards for the fledgling industry, on standards tests, modalities for participation and benefits. The Project Manager announced the subsidies funded by the World Bank/IFC to ensure affordability at the bottom of the pyramid.

                Companies from Switzerland, Germany, Uganda, China, India, Japan and of course Nigeria to mention just a few also delighted participants with a retinue of innovative products tailored to meet the subsistence energy demands of Nigerian homes including those offgrid (i.e. not on the national electricity grid). It was estimated that a whopping 30 – 50% of Nigerians are not connected to the national grid. With the current increase in the price of fossil fuel suitable energy is the way to go.

                Regulators were also not left out, with the National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), the Energy Commission, Ministry of Power and Renewable energy programme of the ministry of environment all participants at the Expo. A goodwill message was also received from the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) demonstrating the commitment of all stakeholders to Nigeria’s energy sufficiency. All these culminated in the award and presentation of certificates to exhibitors and participants at the Expo on day three – October 19th. For a detailed report on the Expo and a comprehensive brochure on the companies that attended, please see our website address provided herein.
                At the symposium, this Expo established and resolved that:

                • In spite of concerted action taken by the various governments and their agencies, a lot more needs to be done and as such, government actions must be complimented by an aggressive industry-led revolution that drives the proliferation of energy solutions right across the nation and continent.
                • A match must be made between manufacturers, their distributors on one hand, and the financial services industry and the end-users on the other to ensure that much needed products get to those who really need them and are affordable. A microfinance perspective was strongly recommended to catalyze this revolution and ensure maximum spread.
                • The World Bank/IFC Lighting Africa Project presents a viable standardization process that should be leveraged to ensure quality is delivered to the end-user in order to prevent apathy to much needed solutions resulting from past experiences with non-durable and non-dependable products. It is a shared objective that we must rid homes of toxic kerosene-based products which are doing immeasurable damage to the users. It was also agreed that,
                • The time for inspired action is NOW including a commitment by stakeholders to invest in community enlightenment programmes and other creative corporate social responsibility initiatives to achieve energy sufficiency, as the impact on education, health and the livelihood of beneficiary communities cannot be overemphasized.
