PwC proposes possible solutions to the biggest problem facing Nigeria’s electricity sector

As one can expect, there are many problems facing the Nigerian power sector. A lot of these problems bother on inadequate production. Also, the means via which generated electricity is transmitted also presents another major challenge. See the problems highlighted below:

  • Inadequate gas supply
  • Limited transmission lines
  • Operational inefficiencies
  • Poor water management at hydropower plants
  • Inadequate and obsolete distribution infrastructure

“Gas-fired power plants account for more than 77% of total electricity generated (Q4’2018: 71%) while hydro sources accounted for 23% (Q2’2018: 29%). Insufficient gas supply and variability in rainfall and water level at hydro plants, among other challenges, continue impact power generation in Nigeria.”
