Solar Market Outlook in Nigeria

With a population of 200 million and an economy that relies mostly on its oil reserves, the economy of Nigeria is highly volatile. Add to that Nigeria’s electricity woes. Many residents and business owners in the country rely on generators to power up their business and even then a huge percentage of the population has no access to electricity. 

Experts agree that this shouldn’t be the case as this is a tropical country. Geographically, its location close to the equator means that it has mostly sunny days throughout the year. The government is hoping that this renewable energy source could be the solution they’re seeking to combat the electricity woes that have haunted them for decades.

The National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Policy in Nigeria was established in 2014. This policy details that Nigeria has a target of 20% electricity generation from renewable sources, mostly solar, in an effort to address the nationwide electricity shortage. They are also hoping to encourage more private investments in solar power plants.

There is notably a high solar potential in Nigeria, which gets up to 7 hours of sunlight daily. If this sunlight can be harnessed, it will produce 333,000 MW of solar power, which should be more than enough to bridge the electricity gap in the country. 

Solar Energy Equipment Supply Capacity in Nigeria

Just as solar power plant projects are limited, there is also limited availability in local manufacturers of solar equipment in Nigeria. For those looking to make solar installations, you can turn to online or global suppliers and distributors for that. 

Top Major Seaports & Logistics in Nigeria

Transporting and logistics handling of solar equipment into Nigeria should be easy since there are plenty of commercial ports available such as

  • Lagos Port Complex,
  • Calabar Port Complex,
  • Delta Port,
  • Rivers Port Complex,
  • Tin Can Island Port, 
  • the Onne Port.

PV Sunshades & Solar Carport

What are PV-Sunshades?

The latest and innovative way to use the shades to protect the assets and structures form the harsh sun rays is Photovoltaic Sunshades. Like any ordinary shades, extended structure is required for the PV-Sunshades. 

Photovoltaic panels integrated in the extended roofs for power production. The flat or curved surfaces of the shades absorb maximum sunlight to generate electric power.

Where are the PV-Sunshades used?

In commercial campuses the building structures and vehicles in the parking lot take the whole day of exposure to the sun. Long exposures to the sun results in degradation of the structure and increase in temperature. 

Increase in the interior temperature increases the energy cost for air conditioning. Therefore PV-Sunshades solve two problems at once. Providing shade and reducing the heating effect and contributing to the power generating and reducing energy cost. In commercial campuses PV-Sunshades find their spot in

  • Parking lot sheds: Normal shed with solar panels and electric circuits integrated. 
  • Extended roof tops for buildings: Extended roofs for protecting the front face of the building from the sunrays.
  • Electric vehicle(EV) charging points: Shed for Electric vehicles with charging points.
  • PV Sunshade curtains for glass panels: For protecting the interiors from harmful Uv rays and converting the light into power.

Advantages of PV-Sunshades & Solar Carport

  • Uses renewable energy source for producing electricity
  • Wide variety of options available bot in term sof shape size and colors
  • Low maintenance
  • High tech design for modern look
  • Light on the structure
  • Cost saving from power storage
  • Customizable according to household or commercial use

How does a PV-Sunshade work?

Photovoltaic Sun Shade modules  produce up to 170W of peak power every square meter of the surface. The working is simple like any other Solar power plant. The sunlight is absorbed by the cells and the current is sent through the circuit. 

For example in case parking lot shades, the circuit contains EV charging points. Everything is contained within the shed. Power is stored in the Lithium-Ion batteries for fast charging. Vehicles get charged while parked in the shed during the day time.

What are some top brands of PV-Sunshades?

Most of these manufacturers and suppliers deal in PV screens that are flexible and customizable for various applications.
