• THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ENERGY DATABASE FOR NIGERIA IS CRITICAL FOR THE SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF THE REA MASTERPLAN
    The Nigerian Energy Database (NED) is an initiative of the Rural Electrification Agency (REA), which seeks to provide vital energy/ community/ grid data and encourage transparency in the Nigerian energy industry by creating a central home for energy statistics and community data collected by government agencies, donors and private entities. It is hoped that easily accessible data will reduce the barriers to entry in the Nigerian energy space.

The energy database will be a collaborative online platform for finding and sharing data and analytics towards increasing access to affordable, sustainable, modern and reliable energy in Nigeria. It will provide information on the following:
