Generators importation, distribution cabal will die soon, says ECN bossGenerators importation, distribution cabal will die soon, says ECN boss

The Director General, Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN), Prof. Eli Jidere Bala, has said, that the ignoble activities of the cabal behind the importation and distribution of both industrial and domestic generators in the country would become a thing of the past, as their activities would fizzle out soon.

Bala gave the assurance in view of the ongoing efforts of the Federal Government of Nigeria through the likes of the Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and  other sectoral participations, towards addressing the nation’s energy challenges.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Nigerian Compass, at a one day Multi-Sectoral/Development Partners Forum on Sustainable Energy for (All SE4ALL), organised by the Commission jointly with UNDP, at the Valencia Hotel, Abuja, the director general, however, pointed out that members of the cabal were currently having a field day and could be tolerated in the mean time, due to the inadequate functioning of the National Grid.

According to him, efforts had been geared towards fixing the problem of the grid and that once the problem was over and other measures being embarked upon by the government began to yield fruits, Nigerians would begin to enjoy regular and adequate power supply, to the disappointment of the power cabal.

Earlier in his welcome address, Bala noted that the Sustainable Energy for All initiative, announced by the UN Scribe, Ban Ki Moon in the twinlight of  2011, was aimed at identifying and mobilising action on the  three interlinked objectives to be attained in 2030 to support development and poverty reduction. The objectives, according to him, include: Ensuring universal access to modern energy, such as electricity, fuel and process heat * Doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency and conservation and *Doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

Similarly, he stated that the government's commitment to the initiative had been in the form of developing  national energy plans and targets, provide financial support, and remove perverse tariffs and subsidies; making energy production, supply and utilisation chains more efficient and make public-private partnerships to expand access; Provide funds for clean technologies and investing in both distributed and grid-connected energy solutions; and research and development, capacity building and advocacy.

According to him, the Commission, in partnership with other stakeholders, had put in place the National Energy Policy in 2008, which is an overall energy policy coverring all energy types and ensuring a balanced energy supply mix via active private sector participation; Draft National Energy Master Plan in 2007, which contains the strategies for implementing the National Energy Policy; National Energy Data Plan; Promotion of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency through numerous pilot projects; and National Research Centres for capacity building focusing on renewable energy, energyn efficiency, energy and environment as well as petroleum, among others.
