An exciting, practical Generation Knowledge Hub at Future Energy Nigeria will equip the Nigerian utility and industrial sectors with tried and tested methods to solve their power challenges through mini grids, renewables and gas-to-power projects.
The 15th edition of Future Energy Nigeria will take place in Lagos from 13-14 November and the Generation Knowledge Hub, taking place on the expo floor, is a new, free addition to the event programme, aimed at assisting the local power producers and large power consumers to address the country’s insufficient generation capacity. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
Nigeria’s power potential
“Nigeria’s energy potential and its challenges are well known and reported on,” says Future Energy Nigeria event director Chanelle Hingston. She adds: “the country is endowed with large oil, gas, hydro and solar resources, and it has the potential to generate 12,522 megawatts (MW) of electric power from existing plants. However, most days only about 4,000 MW is generated and 20 million households are still without power while the current rural access rate is 36%.”
Miss Hingston continues, “we have sourced inspiring success stories and case studies from the industry to look at how companies themselves can install capacity, specifically for the rural communities off-grid and through renewables. During the Future Energy Nigeria Generation Knowledge Hub, speakers will focus on off-grid projects which can avoid lengthy approvals and complex funding models. We also focus on accelerating rural access through renewable energy.”
The second day of the Generation Knowledge Hub will look at the advancing Gas-to-Power projects and analysing how Nigeria perceives thermal generation. The burning question whether Gas-to-Power can complement renewables will also be discussed.
The Future Energy Nigeria director continues: “the afternoon of the second day of the Generation Knowledge Hub is specifically for the industrial and large power user audience. The programme will offer solutions for how users can reduce their energy bills, whilst securing energy security by making efficiency savings and an A-Z of installing solar power.”
