This eight-page report takes a close look at thermal projects in Nigeria, looking at sector policy, privatised and other existing generation projects, privatised distribution assets, plus planned gas, coal-fired and nuclear options including on and off-grid projects and initiatives. Project level detail includes project status, installed and planned capacity, development consortia and owners, contract awards and (where applicable) commissioning dates.

The report contains a full-page map detailing Nigeria's power infrastructure, including transmission lines from existing 132kV to planned 760kV lines. Planned and existing thermal and renewable generation sites are shown, with distribution boundaries marked. The map is a PDF file, made using eps graphics, which do not lose resolution as the image is enlarged.
