The opportunities for a possible JETP agreement in Nigeria could be:
- The development of a culture of multi-stakeholder dialogue and the ease of creating spaces for policy dialogue around the JETP issue.
- A clear political vision of the possibilities for achieving universal energy access in Nigeria and ensure 100% clean cooking development.
- The need to remove subsidies related to fossil fuels.
- The net-zero pathway will result in significant net job creation with up to 340,000 jobs created by 2030 and up to 840,000 jobs created by 2060 driven mainly by the Power, Cooking and Transport sectors.
- The country plans to sue gas as transition fuel in Nigeria’s net-zero pathway particularly in the Power and Cooking sectors.
- The energy transition will create significant investment opportunities such as the establishment and expansion of industries related to solar energy, hydrogen, and electric vehicles.
