April Highlight: Power for All Nigeria Workshops
Around 30 distributed renewable companies, NGOs and financial institutions came together to refine Power for All's planned communications campaign.
The one-day events shed light on the challenges and opportunities for distributed renewable energy in Nigeria and will be used to turn those insights into an action-oriented campaign. With support and guidance from the private sector we aim to put companies, individuals and organisations from the sector in the spotlight, and establish a leadership platform to drive the emergence of a thriving distributed renewable energy industry.
