Osinbajo: Nigeria To Achieve 30% Power Supply From Renewables By 2030 by Joylove2324(f): 3:17pm On Feb 12
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has disclosed that Nigeria was planning to have at least 30 per cent of its total electricity supply from renewable sources, majorly solar power in the next nine years.

Prof. Osinbajo spoke yesterday at the inauguration of a 1.12MW Solar Hybrid Project at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, the vice president noted that the ongoing projects being executed by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) were critical to the achievement of that objective and reduction of Nigeria’s carbon footprints.

Osinbajo who noted that at least 22,000 students in the country and several faculties in several universities were already hooked on to the programme, explained that the country was working hard to curb emissions by 20 per cent immediately and 45 per cent in collaboration with its international partners.

The vice president stated that the programme would expand the country’s commitment to global best practice and to cleaner energy in line with the Paris agreement on Climate Change.

As the fastest growing means of energy today, he noted that renewables will be the key economic driver of growth in the nearest future.

He said: “This is yet another milestone in the Energizing Education Programme (NEP). The objective of the programme is that all 37 federal universities and seven teaching hospitals will be provided with captive energy solution to ensure sustainable and reliable power for students and faculties.

“Already 22,000 students and faculties across the country are connected to completed projects in Kano, Ebonyi, Benue and now in Bauchi. Apart from providing reliable power for these institutions, we will have a renewable energy workshop and training centre to provide training for students on renewable energy.

“Renewables are the highest growing source of energy today. In the future , Nigeria intends to have over 30 per cent of its electricity supply from renewables by the year 2030. Our future workforce needs to be ready for this transition.”

The vice president stressed that the current development aligns with Nigeria’s plan to reduce emissions by 20 per cent unconditionally and 45 with international support.

Commenting on the new project, he said it comes with a renewable energy workshop and a training centre to provide training for the students on renewable energy.

He commended the REA for its hard work and openness in the implementation of the programme, urging the agency to redouble its efforts.

In his remarks, Minister of Power, Mr Saleh Mamman, maintained that gone are the days where students read at night with candles, lanterns and torches, saying that aside the captive hybrid solar power plant, renewable energy workshop and training centre, the federal government also installed street lights in the benefitting institutions.

He said that the plant was funded by the FGN green bond, noting that it underscores Nigeria’s adherence to global best practices, as the world transitions to cleaner sources of energy.

Managing Director of the REA, Mr Ahmad Salihijo, while speaking at the ceremony, noted that the project was in line with this administration’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP)

He stressed that the essence of the programme was to provide clean, reliable, safe and sustainable electricity to selected federal universities and teaching hospitals.

“In implementing this, the programme rehabilitates existing electricity distribution infrastructure, illuminate university campuses for improved security and construct renewable energy training centres to nurture female STEM students under this programme.

The STEM Internship programme is an important component of this project, where 20 female students received training in the design and construction of the solar hybrid power plant.

“Under the tutelage of the solar developer, these women received hands-on field and classroom training through the course of this project’s implementation. In total, 60 female stem students have been trained so far,” he disclosed.

Solar Hybrid will be sustainable if installed in our federal universities and a way to free up our national grid while the NESP is also energizing the villages and communities that are not connected to the national grid. This is also create jobs directly and indirectly

What are you doing about the incessant herdsmen ravaging the entire South west with backing of northern governor? That should concern you more right now than talking about audio electricity.

This man must have thrown is pastoral gifts to backseat in other to embrace money that powers his moth like tap water! This man has soiled his hands watching Fulani go on a killing spree without speaking up. What a true definition of a pastor

He talks and yet nothing to show for but misery in everything he speaks on. What are the achievements of APC the last 5 years? Lie Mohammed once answered- They are so big, people can’t see them! What a sham of a government
