The Solar Future Nigeria


SCROLL DOWN

The Solar Future Nigeria


For the 3rd consecutive year, Solarplaza will organize The Solar Future Nigeria. This 2-day conference focuses on the opportunities and challenges in the exciting and rapidly evolving Nigerian solar market and is the industry’s key platform for all stakeholders to connect and exchange knowledge.

Nigeria’s population, boasting over 200 million inhabitants, is one of the largest in Africa and its economy is one of the continent’s strongest. However, the country’s outlook - both in terms of economics and health - could be much improved if energy access were to be more widespread and more reliable. Solar energy has the unique potential to address these issues, help cut down costs, and improve the lives of millions.
