This page presents an initial draft of the country profile on Nigeria from the Off-Grid Lighting Assessment, a collaborative effort of the UNEP en.lighten initiative and the Lumina Project. This is one of 80 country profiles that estimate the savings potential and benefits of switching from fuel-based lighting to solar LED lanterns. For more information, please see the Overview and the assessment Methodology page. A list of all the countries profiled is provided on the Country Reports page.
We are inviting LuminaNET members to review these initial draft reports, and post feedback under each relevant country profile including corrections, updated data, and impressions about the draft results. When posting comments or suggestions, please include supporting documentation (reports, spreadsheets, links, etc.) wherever possible. General comments on the project should be added to the Overview page and any technical comments about the model should be added to the Methodology page.
A PDF copy of the report shown below is also available by clicking here: OGL_NGA_v1.pdf. Thank you for your help and input to this review.
Here's another reason not to use subsidized prices.
At least in the case of Nigeria, (according to this article) actual prices paid tend to be much higher (more than 2x in cases).
"....A worrisome development is that a large chunk of NNPC's subsidy claims is on kerosene, which is not accessible in retail outlets at the subsidised price. Unlike petrol, which is sold at a uniform subsidised price of N97 per litre in most parts of the country, except in extraordinary circumstances, kerosene is not sold at the subsidised price of N50 per litre. ..."
This one puts it at 4x the subsidized price.
This article says that actual prices are 3-4 times higher than the official values
