8

The federal government will supply renewable energy to 304 primary health centers and schools in Nigeria. The initiative is part of the economic sustainability agenda. According to the Minister of State in charge of Energy, Saleh Mamman (photo), the project will be implemented in six geopolitical zones and will be completed in 12 months. He added that the initiative entitled "Energy for all - Mass rural electrification" will support the recovery and economic growth plan in order to mitigate the impact of Covid-19. It will use hybrid solar solutions for around 100 health centers, but also for isolation and treatment centers for the disease. One of the objectives of the project is also to facilitate access to energy in unserved and underserved areas of the country. The ambition of the federal government is that 30% of the total electricity supply come from renewable sources.
