Posted on Fri 18th Sep, 2020 - --- (0 comments)

The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) through its efforts to provide sustainable electricity access for the Nigerian people via the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions is exploring the use of emerging technologies to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of electricity supply models.

In this line, the Federal Ministry of Power (FMP) with the support from the Nigerian Energy Support Programme (NESP) and in collaboration with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Ethereum Foundation (EF), is organising a Hackathon to explore the potential that blockchain technology offers to improve solar mini-grid systems in Nigeria.

  • Financing: Develop solutions for transparent, traceable and verifiable data to improve funding for decentralised electrification projects.
  • Operations: Develop solutions establishing sustainable operations of decentralised electrification projects from verifiable meter readings and measurements, transparent bills/payments collection and other areas.
  • Regulation: Develop solutions for real time data access to Government planners and regulators for faster and better decision making.
