Nigeria has a mini power grid market that is worth $9 billion annually, which is the largest in the world, the CEO of PyroGenesys Ltd, Simon Ighofose, has said.
Citing a survey by the African Development Bank (AfDB), Ighofose said, “51 per cent of the Nigerian population lives in rural areas far from the national grid. This means there are over 80 million people in Nigeria’s rural areas without access to power.
He also noted that Nigeria produced 25 tons of cassava, rice and maize wastes yearly which can generate 18 terawatts hour of renewable energy equivalent to 2000 megawatts daily.
