The thrust of the study, which was funded by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), was to identify, screen, analyse and prioritize policy strategies and develop complementary institutional infrastructure to support mainstreaming expanded electricity access by focusing on rural electricity change in national development planning processes and implementation.
Nigeria’s effort to domesticate the SE4All initiative with a focus on achieving the first objective of universal rural electricity access (the more limited scope of this study) raises three fundamental and practical policy questions: “what to do”, “what not to do”, and “how best to do what should be done,” for the transformation of Nigeria’s abundant non-renewable and renewable energy resources. This is to be anchored on clean and low carbon energy technologies to achieve universal energy access in the drive for the economic and social advancement of the population. Answering these and related questions by focusing on the design and implementation of best practices for the emergence and sustenance of efficient and effective outcomes was the fundamental goal of the study.
