The use of renewable energy is very low in Nigeria, compared to other countries in Africa, Renewable Energy Promoter, Larry Segun-Lean has said.
He noted that renewable energy was not available to compensate for the irregular supply of electricity in the country, adding that the energy source is just gaining recognition in the country.
He said: ‘’Once there is no electricity from the national grid, people leverage on generators to power their houses and factories.
In an interview with a reputable newspaper in the Country, Segun-Lean said Nigeria is largely dependent on hydrocarbons (fossil fuel) for growth, stressing that the use of renewable energy would continue to be low, until the Federal Government gives attention to renewable energy sources, including solar.
He advised the government to review the performance of the nation’s energy sector, with a view to finding solutions to the problems facing the country.
According to him, Nigeria is endowed with human and mineral resources, adding that with proper chaneling of skills and resources, energy problems would be solved in the country.
Hydrocarbons, Larry- Segun said, has unstable future globally, adding that hydrocarbons causes environmental problems such as global warming.
This, he said, implies that Nigeria has to look for means of deepening the use of renewable sub-sector, stressing that any attempt to do this, would bring about growth in the use of renewable energy in the country.
