SMEC Supports Sustainable Electricity Development in Nigeria
SMEC has been engaged by the Transmission Company of Nigeria to undertake a Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) of electricity developments in Nigeria.
SMEC has been engaged by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN)/ Project Management Unit (PMU) under the Nigeria Electricity and Gas Improvement Project (NEGIP) to undertake a Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) of Independent Power Producer (IPP) gas-fired, solar and mini-hydro power developments in Nigeria.
This project forms part of the Government of Nigeria’s Power Sector Reform Program. This Program seeks to: improve the efficiency, reliability and sustainability of the Nigerian electricity sector; increase the number of users serviced by the national electricity grid; and stimulate socioeconomic growth in Nigeria and greater Africa.
The SESA will examine sector-wide environmental and social issues associated with privately funded power generation developments. This will include assessing the institutional capacity for impact management and mitigating the potential negative impacts of developments on surrounding areas.
