The Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN), as part of its mandate to produce strategic plans and coordinate national policies in the field of energy in all its ramifications and to serve as a centre for resolving technical issue in energy, has employed many computer-based tools for energy planning and analyses over the years.

Such tools include Energy and Power Evaluation Program (ENPEP), Wien Automatic System Planning (WASP) for electricity generation expansion planning and Model for Energy Supply Strategy Alternative and their General Environmental Impacts (MESSAGE) for formulating and evaluating alternative energy supply strategies. Others include Simplified Approach for Estimating Environmental Impacts of Electricity (SIMPACTS), Model for Financial Analysis of Electric System Expansion Plans (FINPLAN), which assesses the financial viability of plants and projects as well as Energy Forecasting Framework and Emission Consensus Tools (EFFECT).

In its determination to further promote sustainable energy development in Nigeria, the ECN has again produced in collaboration with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) of the United Kingdom, a modeling tool that interactively reveals the various energy demand and supply pathways over long term periods and their consequent emissions, for Nigeria. It is called The Nigeria Energy Calculator 2050 (NECAL2050). Its documentation has been produced to guide a user in navigating and interpreting the tool. The calculator can be found on the web with the URL (address) www.nigeria-energy-calculator.org. If you have any enquiries, you may contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
