Nigeria’s nuclear power ambitions pose several essential questions: One of which is how the introduction of nuclear energy would help address the electricity gap and how it compares to alternative energy pathways in terms of cost, reliability, and ability to combat climate change, considering current global energy trends. We sponsored the 72nd edition of the Power Dialogue hosted by Nextier Power to discuss these issues with relevant experts in the field.
While this report looks at the impact of incomes and poverty on household choices of cooking fuels, it also explores the hypothesis that fuel substitution is not necessarily perfect and that households often use multiple fuels together.

This policy review identifies key health sector legislation, policies, regulations and guidelines, and calls for the integration and deployment of decentralised and clean energy solutions in the electrification of primary health care facilities across Nigeria.
