Sharing the power with community-led mini-grids to increase Nigerian energy access

RMI have created an initiative called Sharing the Power aimed at increasing the developmental potential and financial sustainability of community-led mini-grids in Nigeria.

The energy and resource efficiency NPO is collaborating with Nigerian-based private mini-grid developers Nayo Tropical Technology and Prado Power to rollout the first cohort of Sharing the Power’s community-centric mini-grid projects. The point of the exercise is to prove that community-centered interventions in mini-grid development can improve system performance while increasing socio-economic development and empowering the mini-grid communities.
