Pathway to Energy Security in Nigeria: Roles and Opportunities for Students and Young Professionals
Energy security has become increasingly critical for human development in our world. However, global concerns on the availability and affordability of energy have resonated to what could be termed "Global Energy Crisis" which has led the world to analyze the components of this energy crisis with a view of proffering solutions to them.
The solutions border on the ability to meet the increasing demand for energy as the world population grows and the middle class continues to expand, resulting in greater energy demand for homes, transportation, electricity, consumer goods etc. while ensuring environmentally safe and sustainable solutions. Hence, there is the need to develop a road map that ensures energy security and sustainability in Nigeria.
Nigeria has a vast wealth of renewable and non-renewable energy sources that have not been optimally developed which has resulted in the nation not being able to provide the energy needs of her citizens. In order to meet the energy demand for its citizens, Nigeria must find ways to develop a framework to commercialize her energy resources to meet the needs of over 200 million population through exploitation of her natural resources and processing of energy products to value-added-products.
This conference is aimed at having a discussion that borders on the pathway for energy security in the country as well as the role and opportunities that abound among Students & Young Professionals who have been identified as a key driver in achieving energy security in Nigeria.
