ENGIE Energy Access Nigeria has unveiled a plan to connect 2,700 unelectrified health centers in Nigerian communities to stable electricity supply using renewable energy over the next four years. The solar homes systems and mini-grid solutions provider plans to commence work this August, this project will improve the quality of health care in these underserved areas by providing reliable access to lighting and medical equipment.
Nigeria is facing a significant challenge in terms of access to electricity for health centers. Currently, only 13,000 of the country’s 36,000 health centers have access to power, and many of those are without reliable electricity. This health center electrification project is a critical step towards addressing this issue, as it will provide renewable energy solutions to improve the livelihoods of people in rural Africa.

This will provide a reliable power supply to four levels of healthcare facilities in order to ensure quality care for patients. Primary Health Centers with beds for emergencies and maternity, Secondary Health Centers with beds for emergencies, out-patient services and minor surgeries, Tertiary Health Centers with all the services offered by a Secondary Health Centre, and Quaternary Health Centers which are hospitals offering a wide range of services.

A more reliable and affordable energy source.
Nigeria is currently facing widespread blackouts and energy shortfalls, which has led to the consideration of mini grids as a valuable long-term solution. Mini grids are localized power systems that can generate and distribute electricity to a specific area, and they have the potential to provide a more reliable and affordable energy source than traditional grid systems. In addition, mini grids can be designed to meet the specific needs of a community, which can help to improve the quality of life for residents.
