Millions of people across Nigeria still have no access to energy. In a country of more than 180 million people, over two-thirds are either not connected to the electricity grid or receive less than four hours of power from it each day. Building a country-wide power grid remains a national aspiration that might take a generation to achieve due to a lack of infrastructure. And this all comes at a time when demand for energy is increasing.
Addressing this challenge requires innovation. That’s why, in 2016, Shell provided seed funding for All On, an independent impact investing company based in Nigeria.
