Nigeria – Power Sector Report

Categories: Electricity, Energy and Natural Resources

Price: $1,295


This report provides a comprehensive industry profile, analysis and outlook of Nigeria’s power sector. Nigeria produces only about 5,000 MW of electricity but requires at least 12,000-15,000 MW to sufficiently power the country and ensure supply security and reliability. Over 50% of Africa's most populous country have no access to electricity. The lack of a reliable power supply and the constant blackouts cause severe economic damage. Commercial electricity is generated mainly from hydropower, steam plants and gas turbines in Nigeria. Until recently, the installed capacity for electricity generation was 98% owned by the Federal Government. The Government has sought to reverse the situation through the recent privatization of the sector. Private investment is expected to result in more reliable and efficient power generation.

The report provides a SWOT analysis, full overview of the power sector and its segments with a focus on the sector’s growth and value. It analyses the country’s thermal (e.g. gas and oil) and renewable energy sources including solar (photovoltaic) energy and wind energy. It analyses the sector’s potential, scrutinizes the country’s energy security, its electricity supply and demand structure. It gives and overview of the national electrification program, as well as regional interconnection. It summarizes recent developments in the sector including the major projects, companies and investors. It outlines the main factors driving growth in the sector, as well as gives details on capital and financing. The Report explains the sectoral policy and regulatory environment in the country and provides an assessment of the risks and challenges in the sector for domestic and foreign investors. Finally, it provides market trends and outlook.

The report draws on national and international data, statistics, media reports and industry insights. It is useful to domestic and international investors, policy-makers, businesses and research institutions in understanding investment opportunities, risks and challenges, legal and business environment in Nigeria.
