CHALLENGES

Lagos State, Nigeria

40% of Lagos State residents live in riverine communities, and

are not connected to the national power grid.

Nigeria’s population = 180 million

Tens of millions are far from a clean and stable source of power

Towards a sustainable future in Nigeria:

Deliver clean and reliableaccess to energy to rural schools and

healthcare centers

Eliminate the costly and

harmful dependence on diesel

Leapfrog

technology

This is an example of ….
