An energy system planning model for the industrial sector in Nigeria



PC Njoku

School of Engineering and Engineering Technology Futo IIT, Delhi




This paper reports the energy system modelling projection in the industrial sector of Nigeria. It is carried out to provide a long term perspective on the Scenario buildings for the industrial energy system of Nigeria. The projections have inter-sectoral consistency only to the extent those of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have to the inter-industrial linkages, which are no doubt important. However, it appears that input-output tables have not been instructed and regularly impeded and expanded as part of the planning scenarios that have been generated on the contested demand, which is to assume constant energy intensity in future years. The basis for projecting energy demand in the industrial sector is to estimate the likely changes in energy consumption intensity and the ratio of energy consumption to value added. It is considered expedient and pragmatic to use a scenario for constructing an optimal level forecast, projecting a desirable energy equilibrium pattern for the year 2010.

Keywords: energy system planning, industrial sector
