Minimizing the cost of energy consumption for public institutions in Nigeria

Energy and humanity are superimposed. Its importance to mankind and indispensable nature to the world cannot be overemphasized. Public institutions need energy to carry-out their daily activities.



Expanding electricity access to all in Nigeria: a spatial planning and cost analysis

The challenge of lack of access to electricity especially in the rural areas of Nigeria is further compounded by the lack of cogent electrification plans. A fairly reasonable electrification plan

A GIS for Rural Electrification Strategies in the Brazilian Amazon

Abstract The World Bank estimates that approximately 1.2 billion people in the world still live without electricity. The UNs Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) seek to provide universal access to

Least-Cost Electrification Modeling and Planning—A Case Study for Five Nigerian Federal States

This work has developed a modeling process to derive a least-cost electrification plan for five federal states in Nigeria combining energy system simulations with geospatial information system tools.

Optimal Electrification Planning Incorporating On- and Off-Grid Technologies: The Reference Electrification Model (REM)

A computer-based optimization model—named the reference electrification model (REM)—which performs automatic electrification planning and is able to identify lowest cost system designs to most effectively provide desired levels of electricity access to populations of any given size is described.
