Renewable energy: All On partners REAN to advance sector
All On has entered into a partnership with the Renewable Energy Association of Nigeria ( REAN) to advance the renewable sector in Nigeria, especially to raise awareness of the sector's potential
The president of Renewable Energy Association of Nigeria ( REAN), Dr Segun Adaju who disclosed this at a Media chat with Journalists in Abuja, said although the importation of poor quality solar components by unscrupulous elements in the past had discouraged many Nigerians from the use of solar components, the sector potential for growth is high in country.
He, however , said that there are now available instruments in the country to check fake and substandard renewable energy products.
Dr Segun Adaju stressed on the need to deconstruct the old belief that solar components available in the country are all substandards.
According to him, prior to now, most renewable energy products were imported but now the Association in collaboration with the All On are synergizing with the relevant authorities towards ensuring standardization and also involving the use of local content to light up communities.
Mrs Adaobi Oniwinde, the spokesperson of All On, an energy innovative collaboration, said the organization is committed towards the development and improvement of renewable energy in Nigeria.
She added that part of the strategic plan was to ensure production of the local components of the solar system to avoid capital flight.
She urged the media to step up the vanguard of the advocates for renewable energy for its cost effectiveness, environment-friendliness among others.
REAN is a Non-government Association dedicated to driving policy and formulation of strategies towards improving renewable energy in Nigeria.
