UNESCO Helps Nigeria Establish Solar Research Centre

An international solar energy institute will be established in Nigeria by the United Nation’s Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the federal government of Nigeria.

SOKOTO, Nigeria, NG, 2001-12-12 [SolarAccess.com] Hubert Charles, UNESCO’s representative in Nigeria, announced the plan during a national training workshop on the maintenance and installation of solar PV systems at the Sokoto Energy Research Centre. UNESCO’s activities have focused on assisting member-states in developing their strategy and infrastructure for clean and sustainable technologies, but he says the UN agency will succeed in bridging the energy divide as it works to provide education for all. The managing director of Belmont Nigeria Ltd, Segun Falope, told the workshop that solar power is of great importance to developing countries such as Nigeria.
