Thank you for this wonderful blog. I seen this first time in this blog. It is really interesting. Keep sharing such new information.
Dear Joe, there is research proposing so-called Clean Coal (thanks for providing the links). Other sources, however, are exposing the risks associated with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Please also have a look at this link: - it's a summary of another school of thought.

a) criticism/warnings without proffering solutions or alternate path. typical of lazy academicians
b) a bit of research about coal fired power would show that there are innovative and better ways of exploiting coal for power without the environmental degradation associated with previous methods exploiting coal for power.

Nigeria has coal almost as much as the gas. The abundance of coal from the North East to the South south of Nigeria makes imperative for Nigeria to develop her coal resources for power putting in mind the current security challenges in the Niger Delta Region which account for the vast gas resources in Nigeria. Besides there are new coal power plants been build in Germany today while others are still operating in the USA, UK, Germany, India, Russia, Bulgaria and some other parts of Europe and Asia. Modern technology for coal are abound all over the World. So limiting Nigeria to the use of Coal for Power is doing injustice to the Country. For Europe and America to insist that Nigeria should not use her abundance coal resources for power is wicked and uncalled for. We must at this stage use all resources available to create infrastructural development the country so needed. I appeal to all international communities to assist Nigeria in trying to develop her industries and to be self sufficient in her power generation to boost the economy. Any country that does not want Nigeria to develop her coal resources is not a very friendly country. So am appealling that Nigeria should be allowed...

This is quite a brilliant stride in the right direction. Nigerians ought to quit the blame and hate trading and concentrate on developmental achievements such as this. Thanks for the update.
These are the exact kind of people we need in this era. I believe that it has come to a time that we should rely on these alternative sources of solar energy and all to reduce the energy consumption.

While the tax credits provide a short-term teamwork to invest in solar equipment earlier, there are also significant long-term economic benefits.
Great article, it's useful for me, thanks!
Hey Ebii, This is really excellent information. I have recently wrote about critical Ops.

I believe the Draft Policy has made some remarkable improvements to the 2008 Master Plan, especially on the commitment to utilise LPG & CNG for domestic usage. However, the Policy did not sufficiently address the issue of financing. While it is noted that private sector financing will have to play a very big and crucial role in ensuring the complete fulfilment of the objectives of the policy, there should be more clarity on the participation of private sector financing. Furthermore, the reason most Nigerians prefer to use kerosene and wood for domestic cooking may not be due to availability of LPG alone. There are safety concerns and lack of awareness which should be addressed. There should be harmony with the ministry of environment at the federal, state and local government levels to discourage the use of firewood. There should be plans for estate developers to make provisions for LPG pipelines to directly supply households in certain areas rather than relying on cylinders.

Nigerian power system will have to develop from embedded generation onto the grid. We can then focus on customer metering and defer the huge investment required in the transmission network for now. A carefully planned revamp of the transmission network/ expansion can then take place in the meanwhile.

The Domestic Gas Supply Obligation regime would remain in place during the transition period, the Gas Department shall continue to regulate gas sector while GACN shall continue to perform its role as the National Domestic Gas Aggregator pursuant the National Domestic Gas Supply and Pricing Regulation 2008. In addition GACN was established to perform more than Price Aggregation, GACN as a market maker has entered into 20 years GSAA between Buyer and Seller and has set up Escrow Accounts for security of Gas payments, therefore it is factually inaccurate to suggest that GACN is ""licenced as a vehicle for the industry to operate the aggregation process for a transitional period of five years only""

Currently, there are no incentives for the producers to meet their DSO and so effectiveness of GSAAs for gas supply to the domestic market do not get the necessary attention required from the producers.(Page 48, 5.2.5)"

    This is a fantastic opportunity to bring all stakeholders together towards achieving Nigeria's green target! Nice one team.

    Gradually renewables are getting into the energy generation mix in Nigeria despite the fact they account for the least form of power generated. I have been looking at something around industrial clusters and the communities that surround them, wouldn't it be more sustatinable if industrial manaufacturing complexes are allowed to generate power for their production or a sizable amount of power they consume using cleaner energy generation methiod. This will reduce their reliance on the public grid power which can subsequently be supplied to numerous households that require very little amount of power to function properly. This bring to mind the recent solar farm recently launched in India and the number of households that will benefit from the project.
