Recent Developments of Sustainable Energy: The Key to a Stable Nigeria
This article recommends that sustainable energy systems based on solar and biomass technology be used to address Nigeria’s utility concerns, including acute water scarcity in both rural and urban regions. The study underlines the contradictions of Nigeria’s oil-rich economy and the stark reality of the country’s lack of social infrastructure. Perennial power outages have resulted in the lack or underdevelopment of basic social facilities in Nigeria for many years. The lack of resources has resulted in an increase in extreme poverty in both rural and urban areas, as well as the deterioration of social order and threats to citizens and their property. Through the construction of Renewable Energy Business Incubators, creative lending techniques, NGO alliances, and altering energy-distribution duties, this study suggests the adaption of two emerging technologies for building sustainable energy systems and the development of decentralised and sustainable energy sources as catalysts for much-needed social infrastructure development. These reforms would help to boost the country’s grassroots economies, provide significant amounts of much-needed clean water, maintain acceptable sanitation standards, and improve the health and well-being of Nigerian communities. The recommended tactics are tailored to the Nigerian environment; nevertheless, the authors argue that the same or comparable tactics could be used in other developing countries to enhance energy and social infrastructure.
The economic and social benefits that sustainable energy systems can provide have driven a number of business and government entities in Nigeria to invest heavily in the new technology.
