National Centre for Energy Efficiency and Conservation (NCEEC)
Policy measure

The Director General of the Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN), A. S. Sambo, acknowledges the potential role of energy efficiency in moderating the energy shortage problem of Nigeria. On this background, the ECN created a National Centre for Energy Efficiency and Conservation (NCEEC) in 2008 as one of the six research centres under the Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN). NCEEC is responsible for research in and the implementation of energy efficiency and conservation in industry and other sectors.


The responsibilities of the NCEEC include (Sambo, 2008):

  • Development of guidelines for energy efficient products and advising on their implementation.

  • Development of energy efficiency codes, standards and specifications for industrial and commercial facilities.

  • Gathering, analysing and managing data and information related to energy supply and consumption.

  • Serving as a centre for training high-level manpower in energy efficiency and conservation. The organization is also set to develop and execute pilot/demonstration projects that highlight concepts of energy efficiency.
