One-Stop-Shop for investors - internet based platform for up-scaling renewable energy and energy efficiency in Nigeria
The objective of the assignment was to have a digital online system as a so-called One-Stop Shop for investors. This One-stop-shop for investors allows easy access to all relevant information for investments in the area of energy efficiency (buildings and industries) and renewable energy systems. The consultancy supported the Nigerian Investment Promotion Council (NIPC), the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing (FMPWH) and the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI) in the establishment of this One- stop-shop online platform for Investors.
The One-Stop Information Platform (OSIP) for investment in the Nigerian Renewable Energy / Engery Efficiency (RE/EE) sector launched on the 30th of November 2020. A second phase of the project from February through July 2021 introduced additional features as well as a slightly revamped design. The platform is now publicly accessible at: www.greenenergyinvestment.com.ng.
The website serves international and regional investors with the necessary information to facilitate investment in the RE/EE sector. Additionally the platform aims to match investors with local commercial players in the sector, as well as opportunities in the form of investment schemes, grants, and public tenders. This project was a collaboration between the DIU (Digital Innovation Unit at GFA) and Lucid Media (Berlin), in cooperation with the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) and Rural Electrification Agency (REA); who will host and manage the platform moving forward with assistance from the Nigerian federal Ministry of Power (FMP). The project was supported by GIZ through the Nigerian Energy Support Program (NESP).
