Nigeria will be in the spotlight at the next installment of IRENA’s webinar series on  “Long-term Energy Scenarios (LTES) for Developing National Energy Transition Plans in Africa”.

IRENA hosts the series in collaboration with a range of regional implementation partners including GET.transform, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD), the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Ministry of Energy of Kenya, and the African Union Commission.

Each event will highlight the experiences of African countries or organisations with well-established scenario-based planning practices. The next session (3 December, 12:00pm GMT+3) will feature insights from Nigeria:

  • Prof. Eli Jidere Bala, Director General of the Energy Commission of Nigeria, will present the Energy Commission’s experience in developing strategic plans for the Nigerian energy sector. As the official government body in charge of energy sector planning, the Energy Commission has been developing national Energy Master Plans aimed at meeting the nation’s energy policy objectives and optimising the energy resources for a sustainable development.

The virtual exchange will also benefit from an intervention by

  • Mekalia Paulos, Research Officer, UNECA

and be moderated by

  • Linus Mofor, Senior Environmental Affairs Officer, Energy, Infrastructure and Climate Change, African Climate Policy Centre, UNECA

The event will be simultaneously available in English and French.
