According to the IRENA data, Africa accounts for 53 685MW renewable energy capacity with some of the leading countries Nigeria’s renewable energy capacity rose slightly higher to 2153 MW in 2020 from 2152 MW in 2019 with solar energy rising the most and contributing 28MW to the overall capacity, according to a new report mapping solar energy capacity by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
The analysis showed that wind energy accounted for the least capacity contributing only 3MW though southern Nigerian states have their mean wind profile at 10 m height in the range between 3.0 − 3.5 m/s, and some Northern states with mean wind speeds of between 4.0 − 7.5 m/s indicating that the country has good wind resources over most part of the country…
