Welcome to the 3rd Edition of Solar Week Nigeria 2024, where we bring together the brightest minds and most influential leaders in the solar energy industry across West Africa. This year’s conference comes at a pivotal moment, as Nigeria continues its ambitious journey towards a sustainable energy future. The Nigerian government has set significant clean energy goals, including achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions between 2050 and 2070 and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% to 45% by 2030​​.

Nigeria’s solar sector has seen remarkable growth, supported by government initiatives like the NaijaSolar Power Project, which aims to connect 5 million off-grid households to solar power, and substantial foreign investments exceeding USD 227 million​​. The country’s Energy Transition Plan and favorable policies aim to increase the share of renewable energy in the national energy mix, significantly expanding solar, wind, and biomass energy projects​​. Additionally, Nigeria targets providing electricity access to 80% of the population by 2030 and 100% by 2040​​.

As part of this dynamic event, we will explore the latest advancements in solar photovoltaic technologies, innovative business models, and the impact of regulatory frameworks on market development. Our comprehensive agenda includes keynote speeches, panel discussions, technical sessions, and an awards ceremony to honor the exceptional contributions of solar leaders in driving Nigeria’s clean energy targets.

Join us at Solar Week Nigeria 2024 to engage with industry pioneers, discover new opportunities, and contribute to the growing momentum of the solar revolution in West Africa. Together, we can illuminate the path to a sustainable and resilient energy future.
