Electricity and Energy Transition in Nigeria

Electricity and Energy Transition in Nigeria provides readers with a detailed account of the dynamics of energy infrastructure change in Nigeria's electricity sector.


The book starts by introducing the basic theories underpinning the politics of energy infrastructure supply and goes on to explore the historical dimensions of the Nigerian energy transition by highlighting the influences and drivers of energy systems change. Les mer

Electricity and Energy Transition in Nigeria provides readers with a detailed account of the dynamics of energy infrastructure change in Nigeria's electricity sector.


The book starts by introducing the basic theories underpinning the politics of energy infrastructure supply and goes on to explore the historical dimensions of the Nigerian energy transition by highlighting the influences and drivers of energy systems change. Edomah also examines the political dynamics at play, highlighting the political actors and institutions that shape energy supply, as well as the impact of consumer politics. The book concludes by considering how all these factors may influence the future of energy in Nigeria.


This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of energy transitions, energy technology and infrastructure, and African Studies more generally.

"A much needed, original, fresh contribution to both the sustainability transitions and energy studies communities. Extensive in its coverage, and impressive in its scope, this book offers an insightful and comprehensive analysis of Nigeria’s past, present, and future energy challenges. Focusing on topics as diverse as governance, politics, consumers, industrial policy, and the future, it offers highly generalizable results that should be relevant—and read—by researchers well beyond West Africa." -- Benjamin K. Sovacool, Professor of Energy Policy at the University of Sussex, UK, and author of Energy Security, Equality and Justice as well as Visions of Energy Futures

"Every country in the world is faced with the need for massive changes to their energy infrastructure in order to meet the climate emergency that we now face. To do this understanding what has sha»

Introduction






PART 1: Energy demand and supply theories









Theories underpinning electricity demand and infrastructure supply






PART 2: Historical dimensions of the Nigerian energy transition









What really happened? The evolution of energy infrastructure provision (1800 - 2018)










What triggered change? Influences and drivers of energy systems change






PART 3: Political dynamics of energy systems change









Governing energy: Exploring the political influences of energy systems change in the electricity sector.










Governance and transitions: The role of political actors and institutions in energy systems change.










Politics on the consumer side: The role of end-users in shaping electricity markets










Energy and industrial policy: How poorly implemented energy policies impacts industrial growth






PART 4: The future of energy









What should future electricity look like? Possible models for future electricity systems.










The quest for cleaner energy production: The rising role of renewables










Implications of the on-going transitions and its consequences for the future of energy in West Africa










Conclusions
Norbert Edomah is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Science and Technology, Pan-Atlantic University Lagos, Nigeria. His research interests include: industrial energy efficiency and cleaner production; influences underlying changes in energy supply infrastructure; politics of energy infrastructure supply; public policy to improve energy security; and planning and organization of the electricity markets in developing African countries. He is keen on understanding how people respond to (and influence) changes in energy infrastructure systems.
