Nigeria Case Study: Financing Instruments for the Mini-Grid Market

Achieving the energy transformation begins with the identification of realistic approaches. For this Case Study Series, GET.transform has worked with governments, companies, and industry experts to find real-world examples of where renewable energy solutions are truly working viably, to create value for communities, boost employment, and achieve national objectives.

The identified case studies focus on the one hand on renewable energy industry solutions built on revenue-driven business models, as well as on best practice regulatory frameworks that have solved common challenges in the development of the rural electrification and off-grid market. With a focus on Africa, the case studies aim to present policymakers and stakeholders with encouraging evidence from the renewable energy world.

This case study features Nigeria and draws on the experience of the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Power, the Rural Electrification Agency, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, the Nigerian Energy Support Programmes supported by the EU and Germany, and the Federal Government’s Nigerian Electrification Project which receives support from the African Development Bank and World Bank.
