Wind Energy

AS part of measures by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Global Environment Facility (GEF) to promote energy efficiency in Nigeria, Schneider Electric has been selected to implement a renewable energy project at the Energy Commission of Nigeria’s (ECN) Headquarters building in Abuja.

The project, which is aimed at showcasing the Energy Commission of Nigeria’s building as a model for public lighting using renewable energy will include the replacement of all non compliant lighting fixtures in the building with Schneider Electric’s energy efficient LED lamps ‘In-Diya’.

It will also include the installation of Schneider Electric’s off grid energy solution ‘Villasol’, as well as an upgrade of the building’s electrical distribution network to include metering so that the energy consumption of the building can be measured henceforth.

Speaking at the event in Abuja recently, the Country President of Schneider Electric, Mr. Marcel Hochet, described the project as a landmark development in the sensitization of the general public on the feasibility and benefits of energy efficient lamps. According to him, as the global specialist in energy management, Schneider Electric is committed to bringing to the project, its enormous wealth of experience and knowhow to ensure timely completion and delivery.

He therefore stated that Schneider Electric is strongly committed to helping people make the most of their energy. This involves making the energy safe, reliable, efficient, productive and most of all, green. His words: ‘Our fully functional renewable energy project in Asore, Ogun state is a testimony to Schneider Electric’s involvement in renewables industry in Nigeria.
