The European Union (EU) on Tuesday promised to support Nigeria in its energy sector diversification through hydro, wind and biotechnology, to boost the power sector.
Team Lead of EU Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS on Green and Digital Economy, Mrs Inga Stefanowicz, said this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja.
According to Stefanowicz, the organisation has successfully tackled perceived challenges in the energy sector, adding that more will be done to improve on it so as to create youth entrepreneurship and access to finance.
She, however, said that the EU would involve the private sector to help lower costs since new technology had become expensive under the Nigerian Energy Support Programme (NESP) flagship initiative co-founded by Germany.
She also added that a lot had been done through skills creation to provide support to the energy sector.
