Maiden National Conference

CONCEPT NOTE ON THE FORTH COMING NATIONAL CONFERENCE (1-2 MARCH, 2022)

THEME: OPTIMIZING OPPORTUNITIES IN THE ENERGY TRANSITION VALUE CHAIN

Introduction / Background

The REEEA-Alliance is an outcome of Nigerian Energy Support Programme (NESP II), a technical assistance programme co-funded by the European Union and the German Government and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Power, Nigeria. NESP II aims at fostering investments in a domestic market for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, as well as improving access to electricity in disadvantaged, mostly rural communities. The activities of the programme are structured into three units: Electrification Planning and Data Management; Sustainable Energy Access (On-Grid and Off-Grid); and Enabling Environment for RE and EE Investments.  Ministry of Power, Nigeria.

Also partnering with the REEEA-Alliance is the German Solar Industry Association, BSW-Solar based in Berlin. This is fostered through a program run by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Development and Cooperation(BMZ) which focuses on partnership projects. The BSW supports the newly founded REEEA-Alliance to develop into a strong, independent, and sustainable organization able to represent the interests of its members and to offer demand driven services toward their membership.

It is in the light of the above that we will be organizing the first ever National Conference. It is a two-day event with the Theme: “Optimizing Opportunities in the Energy Transition Value Chain” from 1st to 2nd March, 2022.
