The Chairman of Energy Institute Nigeria, Mr. Osten Olorunsola (FEI) said, “The dual challenge of meeting the demand and the supply side of energy on one hand, as well as being environmentally responsible and sustainable on the other hand, simply means that industry practitioners have to devise a means of pulling in two opposite directions at the same time”. “This is the reason we gather all players across the energy spectrum to co-create solutions to global energy challenges” he added.
Reiterating its undertaking to be Africa’s leading investor by 2022, Emma Wade-Smith, Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner to Africa said: “Promoting the merits of Nigeria and the broader African continent as an economic partner means advancing one of th
the continent’s most prosperous sectors to realize its optimal potential.
Our priority is one of solving long-term issues, opportunities for sustainable development and shared prosperity. Earlier this year, we announced we would host an Africa Investment Summit in London; an event that will bring together businesses and governments to promote both the investment opportunities across Africa and the scale of the UK’s investment offer.
“In June, the UK government became the first major economy in the world to pass laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050 and advocates for new technology, innovation and best practices for greener, more sustainable energy.
