Rockefeller Foundation President Joins REA, WorldBank, SEforAIl, GEAPP at a High-Level Roundtable

Excited about the progress we’ve made so far under the Energizing Education Programme (EEP) Phase II. Earlier today, we showcased the University of Abuja’s innovative 3.3MW Solar Hybrid Power Plant, built under the Rural Electrification Agency of Nigeria (REA)’s Nigeria Electrification Project (NEP), to a high-level delegation led by Damilola Ogunbiyi CEO and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General, Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL). This solar hybrid plant will not only empower students but also enhance educational outcomes, and foster a brighter future.

During the visit, we also convened a Development Partners’ Roundtable, where we spotlighted the significant progress achieved under the hashtag and explored how innovative programmes and initiatives, such as The World Bank’s Nigeria Distributed Access through Renewable Energy Scale-Up (DARES) initiative, can enhance and accelerate the deployment and scale-up of electricity access, driving greater impact and sustainability.

Joining forces with Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) , The Rockefeller Foundation and The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet (GEAPP); we’re accelerating clean energy access and Nigeria’s energy transition.I’m proud of our progress and honored to have discussed our advancements with Damilola Ogunbiyi, Dr Rajiv J. Shah, and other key stakeholders.

Rural Electrification Agency of Nigeria is committed to bridging Nigeria’s energy gap and unlock the opportunities to scale up access to electricity
