Scaling off grid power in Nigeria

  • Uzo Egbuche

Abstract

This article addresses the imperative growth of power as the key solution to issues around production, storage, digital revolution and especially, the current job deficit in Nigeria led by children and youth. It equates the high costs, and sometimes unavailability of electricity in rural areas to the production of low quality goods, leading to an uncompetitive economy. As a result, increasing power access beyond the national grid's current capacity has not only become a necessity, but also an important contribution to inclusive growth. Other forms of power generation, like renewables, must be developed and implemented to bridge gaps created by limited access to power.
