A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF ELECTRICITY SUPPLY IN NIGERIA AND FOUR EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.

Abstract

We study the electric grid in Nigeria and four European countries. These countries are Belgium, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The energy generated and the population of these countries are compared and the energy available per person is computed for the five countries. We use published data from International Energy Agency and other sources for our comparison. The result shows that the energy available per person in 2018 in Nigeria was 0.1523kWh. This is the lowest among the five countries been compared. The main reason for this low energy available per person in Nigeria is that the electricity infrastructure in Nigeria is not capable to meet up with the nation demand. We propose that States in Nigeria with the resources should be allowed to generate electricity independently and sell to their citizens or the national grid. The national grid in Nigeria should be redesign to cater for off grid supply of electricity to consumers.

Keywords: power, electricity supply, renewable energy, grid redesign, mini grid, comparative studies.
