The Nigeria Electrification Roadmap (NER) is a set of critical upgrade interventions in the transmission & distribution segments of the power sector, developed by @NigeriaGov in partnership with @Siemens, to increase operational grid capacity to 11,000MW over the next few years.
The Implementation Agreement for the Roadmap was signed by @NigeriaGov and @Siemens on July 22, 2019, in a ceremony presided over by President @MBuhari.

Here is an unfolding timeline of the transformational Roadmap:
August 31, 2018: Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Nigeria and met with President Buhari. She brought along with her a business delegation that included the Global CEO of Siemens, Mr Joe Kaeser. Nigeria & Germany agreed to explore cooperation in a number of areas, including Power.
October 16 and 17, 2018: Siemens and @NigeriaGov’s Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) held a joint workshop, at which Siemens presented a draft proposal.
November 18, 2018: Siemens formally submitted an Expression of Interest and Proposal for a Nigeria Electrification Roadmap (NER), outlining a plan to tackle Nigeria’s historical Transmission and Distribution challenges.
January 8 to 11, 2019: Siemens and BPE (on behalf of the @NigeriaGov) undertook site visits to all Discos. This provided an opportunity to formally engage with the Discos and present to them the draft Roadmap.
March 19 to 22, 2019: A 3-day Workshop bringing together Siemens and @NigeriaGov MDAs, to collate necessary input, validate project assumptions, and identify projects to be included in the first phase of the planned Roadmap.
March 25 to April 30, 2019: Review and revalidation by Siemens of lists of priority projects previously submitted by @TCN_NIGERIA and the Discos.
May 1 to June 26, 2019: Siemens engaged further with representatives of TCN, NERC, BPE, Ministry of Power and all the DisCos to review technical and commercial considerations for the Project, culminating in submission of revised Technical and Commercial Proposal to @NigeriaGov.
July 22, 2019: Signing of Roadmap Implementation Agreement between @Siemens and @NigeriaGov.
Finalizing project costing.
Training Needs Analysis.
Negotiations, with a view to financial close shortly.
The Nigeria Electrification Roadmap (NER) comprises several individual
brownfield and greenfield transmission and distribution upgrade and expansion projects that will be executed by
Siemens and other project partners.

These include but are not limited to the following:

Transmission Projects: Supply and installation of Transmission Substations, Mobile substations, Transformers, Compensation Systems, and Overhead
Transmission Lines.

Distribution Projects: Upgrade/Expansion of existing Distribution Substations. Supply and installation of power distribution products and systems. Installation and commissioning of mobile substations, and power Distribution Lines.

Power System Simulation and Studies:

Software licences and associated services for TCN and DisCos.

Training and Technical Services for TCN and DisCos.

Control & Protection Devices: Supply of Control and Protection devices for TCN and DisCos.


Meter Data Management Systems:

Deployment of national Meter Data Management Infrastructure (Hardware, Software, Services).

Technical Training: Extensive Training and Technical support for TCN, DisCos and other relevant Power Sector Agencies.
Impact of the Nigeria Electrification Roadmap (NER):

a. Will deliver improved power supply nationwide, with attendant results in job creation, investor confidence, cost and ease of doing business and economic growth.
b. Will provide training and capacity building for thousands of young Nigerians (non-graduates, students and

c. Will create economic opportunities for Nigerian engineering companies that will serve as local vendors for the provision of manpower and equipment.
d. Will stimulate/encourage inflow of additional investment into the power sector.

e. Will open up financing opportunities that can be taken up by local banks and investors.
“Our goal is simply to deliver electricity to Nigerian businesses and homes... Our intention is to ensure that our cooperation is structured under a Govt-to-Govt framework. No middlemen will be involved, so that we can achieve value for money for Nigerians.”
— President @MBuhari
I will personally oversee the implementation [of the Nigeria
Electrification Roadmap] as this is a landmark project for Nigeria and Africa." – @JoeKaeser, Global CEO, @Siemens
