image The Nigerian Electricity Industry (EI) has a history of inconsistent electricity supply. To tackle this challenge and bring lasting solution to this problem, the Nigerian Government in 2005 embarked on a reform of the electricity industry. The Nigerian Government opted for ownership unbundling/privatisation of the electricity industry. One of the advantages of liberalising a sector in an economy is that it creates an opening for markets that hitherto were not in existence. The electricity reform has made it possible for Independent Power Producers (IPPs) to obtain licence from the National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to generate electricity. The aim of the report is to analyse a market opportunity created by this reform. The report will also seek to analyse this market opportunity in the context of off grid power production. The reason lies in the fact that most IPPs are getting license to produce power for the national grid but on the other hand, the reform has opened a market for off grid power generation. The report seeks to analyse the market opportunity open to CCGT manufacturers to supply this technology to off grid IPPs. The report finds that there is a huge market opportunity for the CCGT technology in the Nigerian Electricity Industry. The report recommends that the manufacturers of this technology like ABB and Siemens should consider exploring this market.
