Federal Government (FG), International Energy Agency, (IEA) to Brainstorm on Energy Transition
The Federal Government, the International Energy Agency, IEA and stakeholders in the oil and gas sector will on September 10, hold a workshop as part of Nigeria’s efforts at facilitating its energy transition through carbon capture, utilisation, and storage, CCUS development.
A statement by the technical adviser on gas business and policy implementation to the Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Engr. Justice Derefaka, said the workshop is geared towards meeting Nigeria’s global energy and climate goals
The workshop, which would have local and international experts on CCUS, would also help Nigeria meet its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, 17-SDGs by transitioning to a cleaner and lower-carbon energy system.
“As you may all know; humanity is currently confronted with one of the greatest problems it has ever faced. The dilemma is how Nigeria, and the rest of the world can meet rising energy demand while also attempting to transition to a cleaner, lower-carbon energy system in order to combat climate change and air pollution. Each of us has a responsibility to our country, and we must all do our share. We need to deliver greater and cleaner energy as a government. So, how can the oil and gas industry and other sectors prosper during this period of energy transition? It is, first and foremost, a projection of the future.
