Jos solar power mini-grid plant underway – Consortium 

A team of consortium said Thursday that a major portion of Nigeria’s energy demand is underway following its advancement of an Anaerobic Digestion low-cost solar power mini-grid plant in Jos.

The investors, ECOSMART Consortium, said the plant is a technological breakthrough which combines the  benefits of converting agriculture wastes and solar to produce biogas for cooking, organic fertilizer, as well as electricity power solutions for healthy, eco-friendly.

The consortium team is made up of five collaborators from the international community experts and five Nigerian professionals with the Energy Industry Development Initiative, (EIDI), being one of the Nigerian partners.

The breakthrough was contained in a press statement issued by the Energy Industry Development Initiative on behalf of the  consortium.

According to the statement, ECOSMART Consortium is funded through the United Kingdom Energy Catalyst Round 8 program, EC8, a program meant to address the need for clean, affordable, and secure energy in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

It added that “hybrid renewable power generation is becoming increasingly versatile and appealing to meet load in both stand alone and grid-connected modes.”
