“As more and more countries are expanding energy generation from renewable and sustainable sources, the government in commitment to the Lagos Climate Action Plan is increasing attention to decarbonising the power system and providing structures to meet the energy need of the populace,” he said.

“A greater demand for electricity requires both renewable sources and a stronger delivery system. To this end, the government is engendering partnerships and identifying opportunities towards building formidable energy network which has the potential to transform socio-economic environments,” he said.
