Oil-Rich Nigeria Turns To Renewable Energy As Population Booms

Faced with a population boom that has sent carbon emissions soaring and stretched power supplies to breaking point, oil-rich Nigeria is turning to renewable energy in a big way. According to power minister  Fashola, Nigeria needs more than 10 times its current electricity output to guarantee supply for its 198 million people, nearly half of whom have no access at all. Nigeria has set a target of expanding electricity access to 75 percent of the population by 2020 and 90 percent by 2030.
