Revised in March 2024, this map provides a detailed view of the power sector in Nigeria. The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned are shown by type – including liquid fuels, gas and liquid fuels, natural gas, coal, hybrid, hydroelectricity, nuclear, solar PV, wind and biomass/biogas.

An inset provides greater detail for the region covering Onitsha, Port Harcourt and Calabar, while four smaller insets provide a closer look at Abuja, Kano, Lagos, and the gas projects around and to the east of Port Harcourt.

A small table lists the largest operating independent power producers (IPPs)

Generation sites are marked with different sized circles to show sites of 4-9MW, 10-99MW, 100-999MW and 1,000MW and above. Operating IPPs of 10MW and above are also indicated.

Existing and future transmission and distribution lines are shown ranging from 132kV to 330kV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Benin, Niger and Cameroon.

Power generation data was drawn from our African Energy Live Data platform, which contains project level detail on power plants and projects across Africa.

The map is presented as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
