Energy is a very key factor in the development of any country. Almost every facet of life depends on electricity for survival. In fact, industrialization and good life would suffer without adequate reliable good quality electricity supply. Unfortunately, many nations of the world, including the so-called developed countries are still having some difficulty in providing stable, quality and adequate electricity necessary for socio-economic activities. Major grey areas include energy mix, compatibility with environment, electricity quality, and access. The paper aims at disseminating knowledge on energy development as it relates to Nigeria. This would enable nations across the globe to compare notes, assess and improve on the practices that could enhance own energy sector in the face of current global energy challenge.
