Proper Energy Mix: A Solution to Stable Power Supply in Nigeria

John Tarilanyo Afa, V.I.E. Anireh

Abstract


Nigeria is a country blessed with abundant sources of energy. The choice of energy for electricity generation in an area has always been influenced by political motives that the proper choice of energy type and the economic advantages are not considered. Due to these wrong foundations the stable power supply has been seen in Nigeria as an impossible target. The paper therefore is aimed at considering the available sources of energy in Nigeria and to suggest the best energy mix that will make this dream a reality. For this reason studies were carried out in some parts of the world as regards to: (i) The sources of energy available, (ii) The energy mix, (iii) The generating sources and the available energy. From the study it was seen that Nigeria primary energy resources are in excess of its domestic electric energy requirements that it should not experience electricity supply inadequacies. One of the solutions to adequate and stable power supply is to have a proper energy mix with proper load projection and good management system.
