‘We need consistent policies, investment to address power challenges’

The Deputy Managing Director, Royal Power and Energy Limited, Kesavan Madhavarao has called on the Federal Government to prioritise policy consistency as well as investment to address power challenges.

Speaking while unveiling some renewable options in Abuja, especially hybrid solar home systems, inverters and other renewable energy devices, Kesavan, stressed on the need for improved capacity in the power sector, noting that the company has trained over 200 Nigerians on power installations as it works to complement the efforts of the federal government in providing power supply for Nigerians.

He also urged government to provide a favourable business climate for investors noting that there was need for consistent policies and investment in the power sector just as India began 70 years ago to solve its electricity problems.

The firm’s Channels Manager, Deepak Kumar, said the firm has spent 15 years in Nigeria, adding that over 15,000 installations with products ranging from solar roof top solutions, pure sine wave signal inverter, renewable energy battery and solar lighting equipment have been installed across the country.

He pledged the firm’s commitment to improving renewable energy in northern Nigeria.

A renewable energy expert at the event, Darlington Johnson said renewable energy accounts for 25 percent of the grid in Germany adding that Nigeria is taking a cue from that.

“Many people doubt the success of solar power but it is efficient and it’s becoming affordable with global efforts. Firms are improving various energy solutions like what Royal Power is doing,” he noted.
