The Presidential Compressed Natural Gas Initiative has partnered with the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All for the provision of greener and more sustainable energy in Nigeria.

The Programme Director/Chief Executive of PCNGI, Michael Oluwagbemi, disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Lagos.

According to him, the workshop marks a significant milestone in the commitment of the nation to join the rest of the world in the enhancement of sustainable energy access.

He said it featured insightful presentations on critical topics such as the Nigeria Energy Transition Plan, Nigeria E-bus strategy, Solar Empowerment for Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises, and Nigeria’s Carbon Market Activation Plan.

According to him, the workshop was held as a follow-up to an initial meeting in Abuja, Nigeria, between SEforAll CEO Ogunbiyi and PCNGi Chairman, Adedeji.

The workshop, Oluwagbemi said, was to also showcase the progress and key initiatives contributing to Nigeria’s sustainable development agenda.

“These initiatives, presented with impact and relevance, are pivotal in steering Nigeria towards a more sustainable future, aligning with global goals and impacting the nation’s development landscape,” he said.

The workshop also highlighted PCNGi’s integral role in steering Nigeria towards a greener, more sustainable future.

“The workshop aimed to identify opportunities for collaboration and outline concrete steps for forging impactful partnerships between SEforALL and FIRS/PCNGi.

“PCNGi’s active participation in the workshop underscores its dedication to fostering collaboration among key stakeholders,” Oluwagbemi said.

According to him, the committee envisions a future where sustainable practices are ingrained in Nigeria’s energy landscape, contributing to economic growth, environmental conservation, and enhanced energy access.

He reaffirmed the commitment to ongoing collaboration for all parties to drive sustainable solutions contributing to Nigeria’s broader development goals.

“As Nigeria’s sustainable development progresses, PCNGI remains a driving force, ensuring that the nation’s green growth goals are met and exceeded.
