The practical Generation Knowledge Hub which has been factored into the Future Energy Nigeria project is designed to 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.
“Nigeria’s energy potential and its challenges are well known and reported on,” said 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 per cent.”
Hingston continued, “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 would 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 would also be discussed.
