Scaling Energy Access to Reach Nigeria’s Disenfranchised Population


Register for this Event  

Decentralized clean energy systems will play a major role in closing Nigeria’s energy access gap due to grid limitations. A large proportion of Nigeria’s 117 million people either are unconnected to the national grid or frustrated by intermittent power. Currently, highly polluting gasoline or diesel generators maximize cost, lung diseases, and environmental degradation. The national grid failure, however, creates enormous opportunities for distributed energy services companies to connect businesses, institutions, and households to standalone solar systems and mini-grids as captive power solutions.

About the Speaker:

Hannah Kabir is the founder and CEO of Creeds Energy, a renewable energy services and solutions provider which installs reliable energy for the underserved and unserved in Nigeria. CREEDS has designed and installed over 300kWp solar powered grid back-up and decentralized off-grid systems for businesses, communities, healthcare centers and schools across seven states. The CREEDS model for SMEs is gaining international recognition as an “exceptionally promising clean energy investment opportunity”. In 2018, the CREEDS model on Solar Power for Small and Medium Enterprises won the USADF AllOn Nigeria Off-Grid Energy Challenge as well as the 2018 Private Financing Advisory Network’s (PFAN) second global Climate & Clean Energy Investment Forum Award held in Vienna, Austria.
