Hybrid Solar PV Systems in Nigeria


Countries in the Global South are innately blessed with various renewable energy sources, including solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal. These sources can provide sufficient electricity to both rural villages and urban cities. There is a need to invest in renewable energy sources and end reliance on nonrenewable energy sources, which account for 70% of the region's total electricity production. Nonetheless, access to electricity remains a critical regulatory concern for most of the Global South. Investing in renewable energy sources has numerous environmental benefits, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change, in addition to addressing the issue of electricity access. Moreover, promoting renewable energy can create employment opportunities and stimulate economic growth in these regions, leading to overall population development and improved living conditions.
