Internal and External Relationships


Energy is an input to all productive sectors of the economy. Because of the energy implications of overall socio-economic development plans, multi-sectoral inputs are needed for integrated energy planning.

The production, conversion and delivery of the various forms of energy require activities which cut across the functions of various ministries including, Petroleum Resources, Solid Minerals Development, Power and Steel, Transport, Communications, Agriculture, etc.

The programmes of such ministries as Industry, Transport, Health, Agriculture, Water Resources and Rural Development, Defence, Communications, etc all require significant energy inputs. 

To ensure a co-ordinated development of the energy sector in consonance with the overall national development goals, the Energy Commission, through its policies and plans, has specified the various contributions expected of the energy supply sub-sectors to the total energy mix as well as the application of the energy types to the different consumption sectors.

It is also the responsibility of the Commission to monitor the performances of the various institutions to ensure compliance with the overall energy policy and programme.

In the pursuit of Regional and International Energy Cooperation and Development objectives, linkages have been established with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the World Energy Council (WEC), the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), African Petroleum Producers Association (APPA), African Energy Commission (AEC), the United Nation Development Programme (UNDP), Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and other relevant United Nations Agencies.

Meeting our bilateral and multilateral obligations under the Regional, Sub-regional and International cooperation arrangements often require prompt presidential actions.
