Renewable energy presentation delivered at Nigeria at UMYU – CERER Renewable Energy 2012 Conference

A renewable energy presentation was delivered on September 4, 2012 by Professor Magdalena Muir at the UMYU – CERER Renewable Energy
2012 Conference in Katsina, Nigeria. The Umaru Musa Yaradua University in a prominent university in northern Nigeria. The The Centre for Renewable Energy Research was established in May 2008, and operates research groups for solar energy, wind energy, small hydro, biofuels and energy efficiency and conservation.

Nigeria is focusing on the present and future role of renewable energy to meeting current and future energy needs, to provide energy securityand economic development, and to assist in using water resources and meeting water demands. Renewable energy can provide the necessary energy security and economic development in Nigeria, both in the presence of a reliable electricity grid infrastructure and in the absence of that infrastructure. Renewable energy can also support efficient and cost-effective water management and sanitation for agricultural, domestic and industrial purposes within Nigeria. Approaches to renewable energy in other parts of the world were highlighted in that presentation, and can provide insights and models for the development of renewable energy in Nigeria.
