NERC, MAN working out modalities for embedded power clusters

The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) has said it is working with the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to iron out the modalities for mainstreaming micro-grid and embedded power generation into the existing electric supply, ThisDay reports.

President, MAN, Dr. Frank Jacobs, explained that power supply is key to the manufacturing sector and sine-qua-non for the overall development of the economy but that “So much investment is yet to be made in the transmission sector and in the gas to power sector. Nigeria needs a financial enabling environment to boost the power sector to increase the capacity at the distribution level.

A lot of investment is required and if they are not made, we cannot expect magic to happen,” he said.

“Already, we are setting up a committee comprised of representatives of NERC and MAN to work out and recommend modalities for mainstreaming the micro-grid and embedded power generation into the electric supply and the power structure.

This is aimed at removing the impediments that currently hinder the infusion of these viable segments into the constellation of electricity supply sources,” he said.
