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.

Solar Facades

What are Solar-Facades(BIPV)?

Solar Facades are a form of a BIPV that converts renewable energy from the sun into electricity. Solar Facades are like any facade, but with modifications. They are integrated into any building and construction and serve the secondary purpose of generating electricity. They observe excessive heat, air pollution and dampens the sound.

Solar Facades get integrated into the walls before or after the construction is finished.

Where are Solar-Facades used?

According to the application and the type of construction, the integration of Solar Facades are categorized as:

  • Solar building skins
  • PV cladding
  • Wall-mounted Solar Facades
  • Wall integrated Solar Facades
  • Solar panel cladding for ventilation
  • Solar Facades for insulation
  • The second layer on the wall
  • Solar glazing
  • Solar panel skylights
  • Solar Shading for balconies

Types of Solar-Facades

Wall-mounted and wall integrated facades are the most popular types of facades that companies are manufacturing currently.

According to the application and the type of construction in which the integration is done, the Solar Facades are categorized. These categories are

  • Solar building skins
  • PV cladding
  • Wall mounted Solar Facades
  • Wall integrated Solar Facades
  • Solar panel cladding for ventilation
  • Solar Facades for insulation
  • Second layer on the wall
  • Solar glazing
  • Solar panel skylights
  • Solar Shading for balconies

How does a Solar-Facade work?

High-rise buildings receive sunlight throughout the day. Some buildings face disintegration due to this harsh environment. To tackle this issue and generate energy while doing so, Solar Facades are integrated into the structure walls.

Solar panels present in the building absorb most of the heat and light from the sun’s rays. With the help of photovoltaic cells, this renewable source of energy is converted into electricity. All the panels are interconnected with optimizers and inverters to get optimum output for consumption.

What are some big manufacturing brands of Solar-Facades?

Companies are finding eco-friendly and sustainable approaches for developing architecture, especially in remote locations. These companies are manufacturing Solar panels for facades and BIPV.
