DUBLIN, Nov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The "Nigeria Power Report 2021/22" report has been added to's offering.
The Nigeria Power Report 2021 shows that the challenges facing the power sector are likely to continue in the medium-term. The lack of gas supply, insufficient T&D infrastructure, and sector illiquidity will contribute to an environment where new IPPs are unlikely to emerge in the coming years. However, after many false dawns the prospect of long-promised recovery may be in sight.

Government policies, supported by the World Bank, look to resolve some of the key issues holding the sector back. Their success will lead to improvements in transmission and distribution – both financial and infrastructural – while the recent passing of the Petroleum Industry Bill will provide much needed clarity for the sector and could unlock new gas supply to the domestic market, as will the construction of major gas pipeline projects. Combined, these may break down some of the major barriers for new IPPs.

In the near term, opportunities for private participation are emerging beyond new build generation. Plans are afoot to privatise the Transmission Company of Nigeria, while state-owned National Integrated Power Projects are being retendered after an unsuccessful privatisation attempt several years ago.

Analysis is underpinned and informed by independent power generation forecasts based on the actual project development pipeline, with data drawn from African Energy Live Data – a proprietary database of more than 6,700 power projects and plant.

The report examines the progress and impact of the government's reform programme alongside the wider challenges facing the electricity supply industry as it tries to improve electricity supply.
Independent supply and demand outlook – Installed capacity is woefully insufficient to meet demand and hampered by numerous constraints. The report includes African Energy's five-year supply and demand forecast analysing installed generation capacity, available generation, fuel supply and network constraints.
T&D opportunities – The government continues its privatisation drive with plans to sell Nigeria's transmission entity and the proposed franchising of distribution. The report examines the impact of these moves, the role of mini-grids, and what possible opportunities may arise for T&D participants.
Gas supply will be crucial – Gas will continue to fuel Nigeria's power sector for many years to come while oil continues to play a key role in the country's economy. The report includes a detailed assessment of the Petroleum Industry Bill and a forward-looking projection of gas availability for the power sector.
Off-grid growth opportunities – the use of backup diesel generators is widespread, but opportunities for renewables solutions are growing. The report examines the regulations for off-grid generation and distribution and the emerging opportunities for entering this growing sub-sector.
Political and economic risk – With President Buhari reaching the mid-way point of his final term and the economy reeling from the impacts of Covid-19 and the fall in oil prices from their early 2010s peak, the report explores the political dynamics influencing the future of Nigeria's government and questions whether the bleak economic picture will improve in the coming years.

The good news: Retirement at 58 may very well be within your reach, financial advisers said. One of the highest-priority tasks you will face if you retire at 58 (or any time before Medicare is available at 65 years old) is health insurance. There are a few options to be covered, including saving now for whatever cost it will be in the open market later on; taking on a part-time job with health benefits so that you can take advantage of the healthcare, earn a little extra income but still have more freedom than a full-time job requires; or have your wife take on a job that provides the family health insurance (if she isn’t already).

Although the stock market is hovering around an all-time high, supply chain challenges, inflation, and a labor shortage continue to affect many companies. Just as those companies were great buys then, so too is the supply chain crisis paving the way for some excellent buys right now.

Congratulations on amassing such a robust retirement nest egg — $8 million is a true feat. Oftentimes, when I respond to letters like yours, where the person has millions of dollars saved, I get feedback from other readers who are frustrated because they think all that money will make retirement an absolute breeze. The truth is, the money definitely helps — there’s no question about it — but if you don’t have the right plans and protections in place, or you don’t keep to some sort of reasonable budget that allows you to live within your means, you could be at risk of falling short in your retirement too.
