Energy deficiency, which has resulted in high level of energy poverty in Nigeria, is capable of undermining the socio-economic values of the citizens, the Renewable Energy Association of Nigeria (REAN) has warned.

It thus expressed pleasure at being at the forefront of activities to promote the growth and development of the renewable energy industry.

“The ultimate goal is to bring about a reduction in Nigeria’s energy poverty by reducing the adverse socio-economic effects on Nigerians,” the agency said yesterday in a report.

Having regularly arranged or collaborated on awareness and capacity building programmes, the body said the most recent was its planned unveiling of a solar energy information portal.

According to REAN, the attitude towards solar power in the country is still mitigated today, as it is often heard that “Solar doesn’t work” due to the fact that some initial projects may have under-performed in the past.
