Find Electricity and Power expertise in Nigeria

Nigeria imports most of the fuel which it consumes, despite having large reserves of gas and oil. Electricity is generated in hydro and thermal power plants. Due to power shortages, the commercial and industrial sectors often use privately operated diesel generators to supply electricity. 

In ‘The Global Competitiveness Report 2011-2012’, the World Economic Forum, Nigeria was ranked at 139 out of 142 countries in terms of the quality of electricity supply, with a value of 1.5, 3.3 below average. Angola, Lebanon and Nepal were the three countries that scored lower in this respect.

According to the World Bank, electric power consumption in Nigeria was 121 kWh per capita in 2009, compared to 127 in 2008 and 138 in 2007. This is considerably lower than in neighbouring Cameroon (271 in 2009) but considerably higher than in neighbouring Benin (91 in 2009).

According to the World Bank, access to electricity in Nigeria in 2009 was 50.6%. This compares to 60.5% in Ghana, 48.7% in Cameroon and 24.8% in Benin. Most Nigerians with access to electricity are those living in urban areas.
