Powering Nigeria and catalyzing Off Grid development through Mini Grids, Solar Home Systems and Captive Power Plants

About NEP

The Nigeria Electrification Programme (NEP) is a Federal Government (FG) initiative that is private sector driven and seeks to provide electricity access, through mini grids, stand-alone off-grid solutions and a Results Based Finance scheme to accelerate the proliferation of productive appliances and equipment for off-grid communities. In addition, the program will improve electricity supply to selected universities, which currently have unreliable electricity supply and can serve as anchor loads for serving nearby communities in the future.

To support the implementation of the NEP, the Federal Government of Nigeria, through the REA, has successfully secured financing from both the World Bank ($350m) and the African Development Bank ($200m).

The Nigeria Electrification Programme is fully aligned with the Rural Electrification Strategy and Implementation Plan and also supports the Power Sector Recovery Plan (2017-2021) objectives to increase private investment into the energy sector, including implementation of rural energy access and off grid/mini grid energy services.
