The goal of the SUNGAS project is to reduce poverty and support socio-economic development in the Niger Delta by promoting decentralised access to sustainable modern energy services.
The project aims to catalyse development of Nigeria’s natural gas and renewable energy markets through innovation, demonstration, policy dialogue and advocacy. Small demonstration projects for both renewables and gas-to-power will show that community-based energy facilities are technically viable, financially sustainable, and can ensure better access to modern energy services for rural communities.
There are clear reasons why Nigerians want reliable access to energy. The SUNGAS project aims to go beyond the ‘why’ to focus on the ‘how’ to make the case for promoting sustainable decentralised energy service delivery.
The project is financed by the European Union.
The community-based demonstration projects, along with our in-depth research of existing practice and lessons learned, will provide evidence of what’s possible and what the key challenges are, underpinning our policy recommendations.
