Expectations high at resolving Nigeria’s energy crisis


Ahead of the forthcoming 6th Powering Africa: Nigeria 2017 Summit, with the theme: “Recapitalising Nigeria’s Power Sector,” expectations are high that solutions will be proffered in regards to nation’s energy problems and on how best to pull resources to adequately finance the power sector in quest of 20,000 megawatts (MW) by 2020.

This is particularly so with current generating capacity at about 6,803MW, and wheeling capacity of 6,700MW by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), far below the 20,000MW target expected in three years time.

The Summit is being hosted by the ECOWAS Regional Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERERA), with the support of the Senate Committee on Power, Steel and Metallurgy, and the Federal Ministry of Power, Works, and Housing in Abuja, from October 4-6, and being organised by EnergyNet Limited.
