This study concentrates on power generation, transmission and the renewable energy investment opportunities in the Nigeria power sector. It beams light on various failed energy policies by the past government administrations as well as current energy reforms with special attention to the alternative renewable energy solutions. The study was born out of a passion to find suitable and a sustainable lasting, solution to decades of power generation problems which have crippled Nigeria’s industrialisation being Africa’s economic engine room despite the huge amount of investment which has gone to the sector since her independence in 1960 up till date. In order to achieve the set objective, a critical searchlight will be beamed on the power sector with the view of examining various challenges facing the sector as well proffer long lasting solutions. The bureaucracy in obtaining the power generation data from the generation companies for the purpose of this study led to the delay of its completion, despite the current energy reforms which mandated periodical release of power generation to the public. OMOKU 150MWe gas turbine power plant located in River State, the south-south oil-rich region in Nigeria was used as a case study.
