Integrating Renewable Energy into Nigeria’s Energy Mix through the Law: Lessons from Germany

Peter Kayode Oniemola


Nigeria has significant fossil fuel and renewable energy resources. Public policy has focused on support of the former. This paper provides an overview of the current energy policy situation in Nigeria and also outlines the considerable renewable energy resources that the country has. Using the experience of Germany in promoting the installation of renewable electricity systems with a series of legal mechanisms, particularly the use of a feed-in tariff, this article explores legal and policy options for Nigeria to follow the German example in promoting the installation of renewable electricity systems.
