Africa has over 568 million persons lacking access to electricity. According to the World Bank, 85 million Nigerians (or 43% of the population) are not connected to the electricity grid. This makes Nigeria one of the countries with a major energy access deficit in the world.
The Renewable Energy Association of Nigeria (REAN) is an independent non-profit organization vested with the vision to promote strategies that will improve the contribution of renewable energy (RE) by up to forty per cent (40%) of the National Energy Mix by 2030. In 2021, REAN saw the need to engage Nigerians via media campaigns in order to increase public awareness of renewable energy, its benefits to the environment, human health and economic growth, as well as the enormous opportunities that lie within the RE sector.

Through the support from All On, a Shell-funded impact investment company, REAN launched its media engagement ( RE360) program in the first quarter of 2022 which was envisioned to reach over 100 million Nigerians. RE360 aims not just to amplify REAN’s activities but also the work of its members in driving clean energy transition and promoting renewable energy as a viable solution for; households, small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs), and across all works of life.
We are glad that our consistent effort through the series of media activities is yielding great results, going by the positive feedback received from Nigerians both in rural and urban communities.
