Abstract

Despite being aware of the need to promote sustainable environmental development through renewable energy, Nigeria still grapples with enacting and implementing policies that will reduce environmentally damaging activities through the use of fossil fuels, which has increased Nigeria’s global share of greenhouse gas emissions. Accordingly, this paper examines the global attitude to clean energy and further explores renewable energy sources, the existing regulatory enactments geared towards encouraging renewable energy, and challenges in Nigeria. Towards the end of it, this paper proposes a diversion of current energy subsidies on fossil fuels to renewables as well as a revamp of the existing legal framework in such a way that will accommodate both federal and state government participation in policymaking, promotion, and development of renewable energy in the country.
