Why is the Nigeria Power Investors Summit relevant?

Nigeria’s power sector reform witnessed setbacks from inception due to a lack of political will, the uprising of the labour party against the unbundling of the state owned PHCN and the resignation of the former Minister of Power created uncertainty and shattered the confidence of interested investors in Nigeria’s hugely attractive power privatisation process.

Suddenly, 2012 marked a major turning point in the history of Nigeria’s power sector.
After the restructuring of the Ministry of Power and a transparent and rigorous transaction process Manitoba hydro was first awarded the management contract for the transmission company of Nigeria (TCN), five core investors were awarded licenses for the Generation companies (GENCOs) and ten investors were awarded license for the distribution companies (DISCOs). The 15 preferred investors have now paid their 25% instalment for the purchase price for the PHCN successor company with a remaining 75% to conclude the negotiations.

Our track record owes much to our comprehensive network of local correspondents, and the connections we’ve built up throughout Africa since we started publishing back in 1960.
 
Why 'confidential'?
 
This continent-wide, on-the-ground coverage enables us to identify and monitor upcoming issues long before they are picked up by the general media – and analyse their real significance for our readers.
 
What’s more, all our contributors write for us on the basis of strict anonymity, a principle that was established from the outset in 1960 to ensure writers’ personal safety in the turbulent, early years of post-colonial African independence.  Hence the newsletter’s title.
 
Who reads Africa Confidential?
 
Today, Africa Confidential is read fortnightly by a wide range of institutions and individuals around the world, all of them united in their need for timely, accurate and incisive analysis of contemporary African developments.

Why is the Nigeria Power Investors Summit Relevant?

Nigeria’s power sector reform witnessed setbacks from inception due to a lack of political will, the uprising of the labour party against the unbundling of the state owned PHCN and the resignation of the former Minister of Power created uncertainty and shattered the confidence of interested investors in Nigeria’s hugely attractive power privatisation process. 
 
Suddenly, 2012 marked a major turning point in the history of Nigeria’s power sector. 
After the restructuring of the Ministry of Power and a transparent and rigorous transaction process Manitoba hydro was first awarded the management contract for the transmission company of Nigeria (TCN), five core investors were awarded licenses for the Generation companies (GENCOs) and ten investors were awarded license for the distribution companies (DISCOs). The 15 preferred investors have now paid their 25% instalment for the purchase price for the PHCN successor company with a remaining 75% to conclude the negotiations. 
 
The new, MYTO2 tariff structure introduced by the NERC in June set out clear guidelines on how the new asset owners will meet their OPEX and CAPEX obligations, as well as settle its energy bills without subsidy intervention. The effective regulatory environment and competitive pricing frameworks have helped to resuscitate the confidence of investors in the process to reform and awakened global interest to the scale of investments that will flourish from Africa’s most populous nation. 
 
The Federal Government is now taking the next stapes, to developing a working blueprint which will open up massive investment in the nation’s power transmission infrastructure that will require a further $3.4 billion for a 765MVA super grid by 2016 to meet current demand. A $1 billion loan was recently secured by the African Development Bank to finance gas supply, and an additional $150 million to finance the liberalisation of the power sector. 
 
Nigeria has achieved commendable milestones thus far and greater opportunities in infrastructure, gas supply, Greenfield and Brownfield IPPs are yet to abound from the country.  To achieve the ambitious 40,000MW by 20: 20 set out by the PTFP, greater political will and substantial financial investments will be required from local and international investors to establish a successful and competitive power market that will rank Nigeria amongst the world’s 20 biggest economies in 2020.
 

Industry News

Source: Business Wire

  • In June 2010, the government revealed that the country will need to spend around US$6bn a year on electricity generation and distribution if it wants to become one of the 20 most industrialised nations in the world by 2020.
  • During the period 2011-2021, Nigeria's overall power generation is expected to increase by an annual average of 7.07%, reaching 48.4TWh.
  • Nigeria has abundant renewable energy resources, led by solar energy, biomass, wind and hydropower, with potential existing for geothermal and tidal power. The current state of renewable power generation use is very low. There is a lack of appropriate policy and regulatory and institutional framework to stimulate demand and attract investors.
  • Following an increase in 2011 real GDP of an estimated 7.3%, BMI forecasts average annual growth of 7.2% between 2011 and 2021.
  • Thanks partly to the forecast rise in net generation - growth of which barely matches the underlying demand trend - Nigeria is faced with a growing power supply shortfall.

Electricity generation in Nigeria started in 1896 although it was not until 1929 that the first utility company, the Nigerian Electricity Supply Company was established.
 
In the 1950s and 1960s the Nigerian government created the Electricity Corporation of Nigeria to control all existing diesel/coal fired isolated power plants across the country and the Niger Dams Authority to develop hydroelectric power in Nigeria. These two entities were amalgamated into the National Electric Power Authority in 1972.
By the late 1990s it became clear that the publicly owned and operated electricity system was failing to meet Nigeria’s power needs. The National Electric Power Policy of 2001 set the go-forward framework for power reform in Nigeria, leading to the National Electric Power Policy and thus the NIPP.
 
There are currently 23 grid-connected generating plants in operation in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI), with a total installed capacity of 10,396.0 MW and available capacity of 6,056 MW. Most generation is thermal based, with an installed capacity of 8,457.6 MW (81% of the total) and an available capacity of 4,996 MW (83% of the total). Hydropower from three major plants accounts for 1,938.4 MW of total installed capacity (and an available capacity of 1,060 MW).
 
Demand for electricity in Nigeria exceeds supply. A study by a major European engineering firm has estimated that demand will rise from around 33 terawatt hours in 2011 to between 56 and 95 terawatt hours by 2020.

Nigeria is a Federal Constitutional Republic comprising thirty six states and one Federal Capital Territory. Abuja is the capital of the Republic and Lagos is the largest city and the country’s commercial centre. 
 
The population of the country is estimated at 170 million, making it Africa’s most populous nation. Nigeria’s nominal GDP for 2011, estimated by the IMF, was $244 billion, making it the second largest economy in Africa after South Africa. GDP growth is projected at a rate in excess of 6% per annum over the next five years. Nigeria has significant oil and gas reserves. Oil reserves stood at 37.2 billion barrels as at the end of 2011, with production of 2.45 million barrels per day during that year. Gas reserves were approximately 180.5 trillion cubic feet as at the end of 2011. Nigeria also has significant mineral wealth, including coal, bauxite, tantalite, gold, tin, iron ore, limestone, niobium, lead and zinc.
 
 
Before Jim O’Neill, an economist, coined the term MINT to represent the four countries (Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey) that are expected to be the next frontiers for global growth, keen observers already knew that remarkable transformation was happening in Nigeria. Between 1999 and 2012, Nigeria’s GDP grew at an average of 7.9 percent, compared with 2.2 percent in the United States, 1.8 percent in the United Kingdom and 0.4 percent in the Euro zone. In this same period, Nigeria’s GDP per capita had grown from US$700 to US$2,600. In addition, Nigeria has become the second largest economy in Africa. South Africa is the largest economy in Africa but not for long. Read full article
