It said for efficiency and effective growth of the renewable energy sector and speedy access to electricity for all, the private sector should be encouraged by the government with the right policies and coordination.

“The federal government through its relevant MDAs should implement policies to catalyse the production and assembling of renewable energy components in Nigeria. Local manufacturing and assembling companies need to be incentivised to increase their production and manpower capacity for scaling up,” the communiqué read in part.
